Hybridism: Artist as activist

revolveThe Leeway Foundation recently posted video documentation of their day-long symposium “Revolve”  held earlier this year. This video is an interesting panel discussion on the connections between social activism and artistic practice. How do artists place themselves in social movements? How do those movements create space for artists? Moderated by Jeff Chang (author of Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip Hop Generation) the panel features: Melanie Cervantes, Mia Nakano, Roberto Bedoya, and Ryann Holmes.
