Art + Activism: Critical Encounters is an ongoing, college-wide program that facilitates interdisciplinary conversation between Columbia’s students, faculty and staff around the critical and sometimes controversial issues of our time. Through increased on and off-campus engagement with these topics we further explore the relationship between our art and activism. We define the role that we as artists play in shaping our own and public opinion on the roles and responsibilities of art, artists, and activists to incite change in the local community.
The third episode of PUSH, "Just Threads: Panty Pulping" is live! We are live in the papermaking studio with Margaret Mahan and Columbia alumnus Drew Matott (MFA '08) talking about the social and healing possibilities of making paper from significant items of clothing.
Stop by the Art + Activism area at Manifest, Friday May 17, to talk with margaret and Drew and make some paper!
