It’s Armory Art Week in New York, and we we always look forward to finding ways to contribute a new critical perspective that will educate and illuminate an aspect of art. This year, we’ve teamed up with PULSE New York to present an informative discussion as part of the PULSE PERSPECTIVES series.
Art and Revolution
Saturday, March 5, 1pm
We’re in a transitory moment in the history of art and the parameters of contemporary art are changing faster than ever. We have invited some leading artists and writers to discuss the realities of contemporary art in the revolutionary moment. What role does art play in these times of political upheaval, has it changed the nature of the protest and art work? And, most importantly, what should our role as cultural producers be?
Moderated by Hyperallergic’s editor-in-chief Hrag Vartanian, in conversation with writer and curator Ryan Wong, artist, writer, and teacher Chloe Bass, artist and activist Noah Fischer.
This conversation will be held during PULSE’s Saturday programming from 1–2pm, and it will explore the parameters of politics and revolution in the context of art. The talk will take place in the PERSPECTIVES Lounge and it is free with fair admission.
PULSE New York runs March 3–6 at the Metropolitan Pavilion (125 West 18th Street, Chelsea, Manhattan).
