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"

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.

FIELDS brings artists and curators to Cambodia

FIELDS brings artists and curators to Cambodia to engage contemporary ritual practice. The 20-day nomadic itinerary is a proposal that traverses space, temporality, and culture through a politics of memory, inheritance, and tradition by performing a cartography that informs and alters its references. The nation’s agrarian landscape, the fieldwork of anthropologists, academics and aid workers, Buddhist notions of merit-fields, the psycho-geographical landscape referred to as the Killing Fields, and the history of art practices in the expanded field all serve as starting points.

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."
