The Function of Festival in Crisis II


First programmed as part of last year’s festival, this panel continues to reckon with the function of art, festival, and gallery spaces in a time of crisis. What can art and artmakers do? How do we contend with the radical possibilities and limitations of arts programming and its relationship and responsibility to sociopolitical events?
