Art and Activism: “Takin’ it to the Streets”
Wednesday, September 4, 2019
333 West 23rd Street
The third annual Art & Activism event produced by School of Visual Arts, Division of Continuing Education, celebrates the power of collectives, performance as political activism, and artistic activations of public spaces.
A panel discussion will present a collaboration between Sing for Hope, an organization connecting artists, music and the city streets; and the Hetrick-Martin Institute, which provides social services, community, and arts programming to LGBTQ youth. With the support of artist Joan Di Lieto, and illustrator and SVA faculty member Grant Shaffer, youths from HMI’s after-school art program designed and painted a piano, which spent the summer in NYC’s Astor Place Plaza as a functional, accessible artwork for the streets and communities of our city.
Artist, curator, and director of New York City’s Percent for Art Program, Kendal Henry, will discuss the contemporary role of monuments in public spaces, and his work with local communities and She Built to develop 18 new monuments representing women.
Photographer Stacy Arezou Mehrfar’s emotionally rich portraits of demonstrators at marches across New York City after the 2016 election, will be displayed in backlit lightboxes throughout the theater lobby. An excerpt of her large-scale video installation, A Collective Performance will be screened at the start of the evening.
Media personality Valerie Smaldone moderates.
