Description: Socially engaged art exists at the intersection between powerful symbolic statements and quantifiable political change. Rooted in the long history of artistic traditions and more recent upheavals and revolutions, socially engaged art has the power to interrogate privilege and inequity as well as identity-based pretexts for social and political discrimination. William Chambers, instructor at Massachusetts Bay Community College and Visual Arts Chair at the Bancroft School, will present a series of case studies that demonstrate the complex interplay between theory and practice, precedents and challenges found in a field that exists at once in the heart of our social and artistic spheres and nowhere at all.
