All welcome | Free to attend | First come, first served at the door

 

What is protest art? What are its limits and what are its possibilities? Might there be a unique role for art in protest or does the political statement diminish the art? And once a piece of art becomes popular in the art world, can it still be protest art? We bring together those at the forefront of making and thinking about protest art to discuss what it has been, what it is, and what it might be.
