DescriptionA conversation with artist Katy Beinart, writer Lizzie Lloyd and curator Marianne Mulvey which considered their shared interests in socially engaged or participatory art projects.
The event accompanies a new publication developed by Beinart and Lloyd through a collaborative project called Acts of Transfer which also resulted in series of short films, an audio work, photographs, drawings, performances, and texts that document and reactivate a selection of artworks from the past that contain elements of social engagement or public participation.
They worked with a selection of artists to develop this work including: Matt Stokes, Warren and Mosley, Eelyn Lee, Young In Hong, Benjamin Owen, Harun Morrison, Gil Mualem-Doron, and a place of their own (Paula McCloskey and Sam Vardy).
The focus of the event was on the role of socially engaged artworks and projects. We asked:
What is the afterlife of such projects? How do you meaningfully document socially engaged projects? How do you recreate the ‘feel’ of a moment in time to share with audiences who weren’t there? And how can returns, re-enactments, repetitions and retellings help understand the experience of socially engaged artworks for participants, artists, and audiences?
