Artists, musicians, designers, filmmakers, and writers are invited join Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA) for a three-day forum in August to investigate, create, and dialogue on the power of resistance through artistic expression.
VCFA has founded a new “Protest Art and the Art of Protest: An Assembly” forum for artists who seek to explore the intersection of politics and personal expression at a critical time for our culture. The multi-disciplinary Assembly will take place August 18-21, 2017 at the College’s Montpelier campus. Hyperallergic is one the Assembly’s featured sponsors.
VCFA faculty members from the College’s eight graduate programs will direct the Assembly. Faculty representatives include Abby Frucht, Nikki Juen, Lauren Markham, Silas Munro, and Stephen Pite. Guest artists include Kevin Lo, Nate Marshall, Maple Razsa, and Emily Rose Schofield.
“Creative innovation may be inherently radical, but it takes dialogue and inquiry to successfully navigate the intersection of personal expression, public policy, and political reform. ‘Protest Art and The Art of Protest: An Assembly’ was founded to be generative, transformative, and productive for artists who are dedicated to create at the service of social justice and in the face of global crisis,” said Stephen Pite, VCFA co-director of the Assembly.
Registration for “Protest Art and the Art of Protest: An Assembly” is currently open.
