Cities Art Forum (APA4151.01)

Susie Ibarra

Cities have defined many artist’s work, while artists have also defined and help build cities. Art has transformed public spaces and created economic growth. It has provided a critical eye and ear for what is not being seen or heard. While collaborating with health programs and supporting children’s education, art also grapples with poverty, and speaks out on human rights issues. Art has demonstrated against violence and wars, interacted with media and technology,  and provided experiences of great beauty. Art in cities continues to demand however loud or quiet cultural growth in preserving heritage and cutting the edge. Who are some of these artists and what do their works look and sound like? What are some of the creative methods? What are some of the examples of how the creative process has served as a change agent? What are some of the possibilities?  The Forum will look across artistic disciplines as well as across geographical borders and invite a few guests to better understand the dialogue. The Forum this spring will continue focus in the regions of East and Southeast Asia and also in East and South Africa.
