Panel 12: Radical Art

April 23, 2010


Framework Panel 12:
Radical Art - The Evolution of Artistic Revolution

Panelists Edgar Endress, The Floating Lab Collective (DC); Alexandro Segade, My Barbarian (CA); and Martha Wilson, Franklin Furnace, (NY), explored the recent history and future of artwork that continues to challenge audiences and re-define what art is and does through its connection to social practice and activism. Also discussed was how this genre of art-making and their individual and collaborative work addresses cultural conditions, social hierarchies, political authority, disenfranchised populations, and use of history. In tandem with FRAMEWORK #12, My Barbarian presented an artistic action on the steps of the Hirshhorn’s Sculpture Garden and debuted Death Panel Performance in Transformer's project space. Moderated by Ryan Hill.
