E.G. Crichton & Dee Hibbert Jones: Politics of Public Space/Gestures of Subversion

E.G. Crichton & Dee Hibbert Jones (UC Santa Cruz)

Two linked courses, Politics of Public Space and Gestures of Subversion, focus on Interventionist art. The courses tie in with the 3-day conference and month-long festival Intervene! Interrupt! Rethinking Art as Social Practice at UC Santa Cruz. Students work together to create social practice projects, discuss ideas and collaborate with four professional artists whose practice takes the form of interventions into current world politics, the environment, global trade, and surveillance.
