Aesthetics in Participatory, Socially Engaged Art

Posted by: Kate Kenney-Newhard | April 4, 2012 | No Comment |

The Philosophy Department and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences present

“Aesthetics in Participatory, Socially Engaged Art”
Michael Kelly, Professor of Philosophy, University of North Carolina, Charlotte

Contemporary art is increasingly participatory and socially engaged. What are the aspirations, operations, and effects of such art? What are its predecessors? How has aesthetics been an explicit partner in the development of participatory art when, by contrast, so much art since the 1960s has been committed to an anti-aesthetic stance? Is art still tied to aesthetics as it becomes ever more socially engaged?
