The Museum of Modern Art’s Third Annual International Graduate Symposium
The Revolution Will Not Be Curated: Twenty-first Century Perspectives on Art and Politics
April 13 and 14, 2007
The Museum of Modern Art, NY
Art and politics are contested and overlapping fields that are complexly manifested in the theory and artwork of twentieth- and twenty-first-century artists. This symposium seeks to investigate artists’ attempts to deploy art as a means of political force and to critically engage with radically changing conditions of modern and contemporary life. This tradition stretches across media and time, from the visual strategies of the historical avant-garde in the early twentieth century to more recent artistic work emerging in opposition to globalism, and the ensuing political, economic, and military domination of the new world’s super-powers.
