Art as Protest — From 1993 to Now

Thursday, March 7, 2019 3:00 PM

Armory Live Theater on Pier 94
Panel Discussion

Using the infamous 1993 Whitney Biennial as a starting point, this panel will address how institutions show political art today; how the climate for viewing and understanding political art has shifted (or not); and, in turn, what political art looks like in a time of increasing connection, image-literacy, and social-collectivism.

Moderator: Christian Viveros-Fauné, Writer and Curator, University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum

Participants: Elisabeth Sussman, Curator and Sondra Gilman Curator of Photography, Whitney Museum of American Art; Ben Davis, Critic, Iman Issa, Artist.
