ENGAGING PUBLICS/PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT SYMPOSIUM- Aukland, NZ

Saturday 13 September 2014
Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki
A day of discussions about the changing connections between art and its publics Co-organised by Auckland Art Gallery and AUT University School of Art and Design-International keynote speaker Jeanne van Heeswijk.


How can the public play a greater role in art? How can public participants be generative in the creation of culture – in
reality as well as in theory? How can a multitude of voices be heard or seen in ‘public art’ and in art institutions? Can art
in public space support new or productive relationships with communities? Is it possible for art institutions to engage with
expectations that art will assist in the development of a discursive public sphere while also having to prioritise cultural
tourism or the economic contribution of the arts?

Red Decade Exhibit Reflects Future of Block Museum: Northwestern University News

Red Decade Exhibit Reflects Future of Block Museum: Northwestern University News | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
EVANSTON, Ill. --- With a widely-acclaimed exhibit recently concluded, "The Left Front: Radical Art in the 'Red Decade,' 1929-1940," and an eagerly-anticipated new exhibition coming this fall, "Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey," the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art is on a roll. In its five-month run, “The Left Front” showcased the Block’s new approach to audience engagement, with the Northwestern University museum bringing in practitioners from across campus and the world for lectures, performances and conversations about issues of the past that matter today. “The exhibit and its related programs set the tone for the museum's expanded vision,” said Lisa Corrin, the Block Museum’s Ellen Philips Katz Director. “Emphasizing interdisciplinary connections between art, history and ideas, the Block is growing partnerships on and off campus and expanding its vision for what engagement can look like.” The Mutu exhibition, opening Sept. 19 and running through Dec. 7, will advance a global perspective with the internationally renowned Kenyan-born artist's work and mark the first stage of a continuing focus on Africa and the Africa diaspora in Block programming.

The Cocina Abierta Collective: Help Wanted | Exhibitions | L A C E

The Cocina Abierta Collective: Help Wanted | Exhibitions | L A C E | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions: LACE is pleased to announce the upcoming residency of the Cocina Abierta Collective (Christina Sanchez Juarez, Cayetano Juarez, Mario Mesquita and Oakland Bautista), curated by Jacqueline Bell. During their residency, the collective will develop a new iteration of their ongoing project, Cocina Abierta. Cocina Abierta is a nomadic experimental “test kitchen” that facilitates the fluid exchange of immigrant histories, culinary skills, and base building strategies towards the development of a worker-centered philosophy to eating ethically. While a traditional test kitchen functions as a laboratory for the creation of new dishes, Cocina Abierta uses the act of communal cooking and teaching as a methodology through which they gather restaurant workers and consumers in a space of dialogue.
