Social Art Practices
Through the use of various strategies including "urban interventions, utopian proposals, guerrilla architecture, "new genre" public art, social sculpture, project-based community practice, interactive media, service dispersals, and street performance."[1] the primary material of social practice is person-to-person exchange, interaction, or participation. These situations, organizations and events can involve various media including photography, video, drawing, text, sound, sculpture, and performance art.  Within the art making process, the practice emphasizes people in relationships to each other and their surroundings, "focusing on engagement and accountability between the audience and the artist"

Council of Canadians to organize water convoy to Detroit | The Council of Canadians | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Maureen Taylor of the Michigan Welfare Rights Organization was just on CBC Radio's As It Happens. In the interview, Taylor says, "Our sisters and brothers from Ottawa, Canada are bringing barrels of water across the bridge so that we can give it to homes where there's no water." The interviewer asks, "So Canadians are bringing water for the people of Detroit? And you're going to go home to home and deliver this water from Canada?" Taylor answers, "We're going to find a way to deliver this water if we have to reach people and say come to the corner of this and this and there's three barrels of water waiting for you. We'll do it that way."

LIAF | Matt Packer og Arne Skaug Olsen er engasjert som kuratorer for LIAF 2015

LIAF | Matt Packer og Arne Skaug Olsen er engasjert som kuratorer for LIAF 2015 | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
LIAF is a festival for contemporary art taking place in Lofoten a cluster of islands located on the North West Coast of Norway, just above the Arctic Circle, every second year. The festival was first initiated in 1991, as a local art exhibition with a broad range of expressions and with a regional profile. From 1999, the festival was given an international profile changing the name to Lofoten International Art Festival, and since 2009, the festival has been run by The North Norwegian Art Center (NNKS) and the LIAF-Board. LIAF presents works by international artists in a local and site-specific context and seeks to be an open, experimental and including meeting place for artists, audience and locals. LIAF acknowledges the complexity of place and seeks to be a discursive, engaged and social platform for different positions creating dialogue between the local and global. The prospect of developing and discovering new knowledge and understanding through art is the core of the festival. LIAF is not connected to a permanent location or space, but is invented anew every time by infiltrating and moving into already existing structures: Everything from a garage, a library, a shed, a bunker, a fish drying rack, a private house, a shop or an old warehouse. New curators also develop the festival every time, with diverse backgrounds, ideas and practices and in different ways bringing the familiar and unfamiliar together. By insisting on this open and experimental approach, we believe LIAF can be a place for exchange and involvement on multitude levels, every time revealing new things about our world and ourselves.

Tracey Moffatt- Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art

Tracey Moffatt- Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Tracey Moffatt works in photography, film and video, addressing complex open-ended narratives, often in extensive suites of works. Moffatt frequently appears in her own images, acting out roles with the aid of elaborate costumes, props and theatrical staging. The ‘First jobs’ series 2008 is a visual catalogue in high-key colours of Moffatt’s earliest paid employment during the late 1970s and early 1980s. The money she earned from these often gruelling or tedious jobs enabled her to travel overseas in 1979 and supported her through her subsequent studies at the Queensland College of Art. The artist has selected images from period sources and substituted a face in each photograph with her own cheerfully smiling one. The series evokes youthful expectations — she has written of that time: ‘I met a lot of interesting people whilst doing this daily grind. A lot were students with great careers ahead – I could see the stars in their eyes.’ Moffatt is now internationally successful, having realised dreams that she held while peeling pineapples, waiting on tables or packing meat.

Urgent Action | e-flux

Urgent Action | e-flux | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
This exhibition brings together for the first time a selection of urban actions and performances from the last two decades by South American artists collectives. The exhibition Acción Urgente (Urgent Action) is the result of exhaustive research by Cecilia Rabossi and Rodrigo Alonso. It explores the actions carried out by interdisciplinary groups of artists from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay during the last 20 years, all of which form part of a phenomenon that became vital to the region’s art scene during this period. The following collectives are included in the exhibition: Escombros, Costuras Urbanas, Etcétera (Internacional Errorista), Viva Laura Pérez, Mujeres Públicas e Iconoclasistas (Argentina); Mujeres Creando (Bolivia); Frente 3 de Fevereiro, Opavivará, and Contrafilé (Brazil); Cuadernos de Movilización (Chile); Javier López & Erika Meza (Paraguay); Colectivo Sociedad Civil and La Perrera (Peru); and Clemente Padín and Grupo Mujeres Artistas en Movimiento (MAM) (Uruguay). In response to the surrounding political, social, and economic realities, these groups have deployed artistic practices geared to making an array of issues visible. The works in the exhibition evidence the originality, spontaneity, and range of aesthetic resources used in actions that engage the public space of the city as setting. Such actions include the satirical and provocative laughter of Grupo Etcétera as, in the nineties, it staged public denouncements of those involved in perpetrating repression during the last military dictatorship in Argentina; the reinvention of graffiti by the Mujeres Creando collective in Bolivia; and the original proposals of Frente 3 de Fevereiro in Brazil to condemn racism. Together, these and other outstanding proposals shape the dialogue that runs through the exhibition.
