Robert Rauschenberg Project Space
November 19, 2014
Suzaan Boettger, art historian and critic, moderated this discussion between several teams of artists and scientists, along with Julie Reiss, author of From Margins to Center, The Spaces of Installation Art, on the erosion of traditional distinctions between art and utility and emerging hybrids of artistic, social, and ecological functionality. Together they reflected on how various artists’ strategies are recasting the role of the artist as an effective catalyst for social and environmental change.
