Art in the Age of Donald Trump: A Roundtable

The election of Donald J. Trump to President of the United States is only the most recent, and major, signal that the geopolitical and neoliberal economic order that has held sway in most democratic countries since the early 1990s is in crisis. How are the arts, and artists, to respond? Is the solution refusal, a simple rejection of national and federal initiatives, or of politics period? Is it activism, an insurgency played out in the streets, on Twitter, and in the media? Join artists and educators for a conversation about the new wave of global populism and what it means for art practices in the present.

Friday, January 27, 3.00-4:30pm

Tony De Los Reyes, Aaron Morse, Fred Lonidier, Christine Wang, Zoe Crosher

Moderated by Jonathan Neil
