In Conversation: Awareness, Action and Dissent (Part I)
Thursday, October 26, 6:30 PM
Ring Auditorium, Hirshhorn
In the spirit of Ai Weiwei’s commitment to driving social and political change, join us for the first installment of “In Conversation: Awareness, Action and Dissent,” an exploration into the power of art to raise awareness and inspire action amid politically and culturally tumultuous times. Nato Thompson, artistic director of Creative Time, will lead a wide-ranging conversation with headline-making artists Laurie Jo Reynolds, Pedro Reyes, and Paul Ramírez Jonas on how their art directly confronts legislative and social issues, and engages contemporary audiences.
