As part of a four month series of discursive events entitled Mapping LA, the Armory Center for the Arts is pleased to again welcome Big City Forum in residence with Socially Engaged Aesthetics. This panel discussion will explore how contemporary artists and curators are engaging in public practice within a larger social and political dimension. Panel participants include:
- Dave Hullfish Bailey, an artist whose approach to investigating sites is focused upon how geography, physical infrastructure and social narratives of emancipation intersect in speciﬁc places.
- Liz Glynn, an artist who often looks to historical narratives and artifacts to kindle in-depth reflections on the present moment.
- Ashley Hunt, an artist and activist who uses video, photography, mapping and writing to engage social movements, modes of learning and public discourse about power structures.
- Aandrea Stang, the Senior Education Program Manager for the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and organizer of ENGAGEMENT PARTY, a series of interventions by local artist collectives at MOCA.
- Aram Moshayedi (Moderator), Assistant Curator of the Gallery at REDCAT and a doctoral candidate in the department of art history at the University of Southern California.
The entire series, which is free and open to the public, continues to take place on the first Wednesdays of May and June 2012 at 7pm at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, CA.
