COME IN, WE’RE OPEN is a show that brings together a range of voices and texts from the emerging field of social practice. We — Edith Abeyta, Carol Zou, and Owen Driggs — are inviting artists, curators, and writers who work in the field to make a 5-minute video using Google+ Hangout, with the following questions as guidance:
– How do you define social practice?
– Please describe one of your recent projects and how it intersects with social practice.
– What are some of the challenges facing social practice artists as you see it?
– How do you envision social practice evolving in the future?
The videos will be available online in a Youtube playlist, and on view in the Los Angeles Community College (LACC) gallery. Additionally, the gallery installation will offer texts on social practice, and hands-on student engagement events. After the show, the videos will be used as an educational archive for LACC.
