thinking making living
This group exhibition and series of related public programs investigate socially engaged artistic practices that invite participation, foster collaboration, and imagine cross-disciplinary approaches to the social, political and ecological issues of our time. Over the last decade, socially engaged art has emerged as a distinctive form of contemporary practice, its roots tangled in social activism, community organizing, avant-garde ambitions to unite art and life, happenings, political performance and advocacy. The Twin Cities in particular have become a hotbed for such practices that question how we are in the world today, how we relate to each other and interact with the ecological, political, and cultural issues that shape our lives.
The roster of participating local and national artists includes: Eric Asboe, Emily Baxter, Jan Binder, Body Cartography (Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad), Allison Bolah, Miranda Brandon, Rachel Breen, Big Car, Kate Casanova, Crescent Collective (Laura Bigger, Artemis Ettsen, and Teréz Iacovino), Annie Follett, Beth Grossman, Katie Hargrave, Emily Johnson, Seitu Jones, Low Tech High Joy (Karen Kasel and Marlaine Cox), John Kim, Emily Lloyd, Amanda Lovelee, Works Progress (Shanai Matteson, Colin Kloecker), J. Morgan Puett, Molly Balcom Raleigh, Janaki Ranpura, Red 76 (Sam Gould), Mona Smith, Emily Stover, Amy Waksmonski, Marcus Young, Nate Young and Marina Zurkow. University of Minnesota faculty participating in the exhibition and activities include Christine Baeumler, Valentine Cadieux, Jan Estep, David Feinberg, Rebecca Krinke, Christina Schmid, Paul Shambroom and Diane Willow.
