Session 214: Future Imperfect
For this session, Philip Matesic choose essays by Jan Cohen-Cruz, Elizabeth M. Grady and Grant Kester from the book Future Imperfect: A Blade of Grass (A Blade of Grass Books, 2017).
Future Imperfect weaves together accessible scholarship and leading examples of socially engaged art, including artist projects by Mel Chin, Brett Cook, Pablo Helguera, Fran Ilich, Norene Leddy & Liz Slagus, Jan Mun and Jody Wood. Further essays by Deborah Fisher, Laura Raicovich, Jan Cohen-Cruz and Elizabeth M. Grady analyze the institutional context for the art, exploring the ways that it affects organizational structure, how its impact can be assessed, and curatorial perspectives.” -Book cover
