Friday, April 23, 2010; 12:30 - 2pm
Hirshhorn Museum Auditorium

This panel will explore the recent history and future of artwork that continues to challenge audiences and re-define what art is and does through its connection to social practice and activism - from early leaders like Joseph Beuys, through to the Guerrilla Girls, and more recently The Floating Lab Collective and My Barbarian.

Participating panelists include: Edgar Endress, The Floating Lab Collective (DC); Alexandro Segade, My Barbarian (CA); and Martha Wilson, Franklin Furnace, (NY). The panel will be moderated by Ryan Hill, artist; Transformer Board Member; and Manager of Interpretive Programs & Curatorial Research Associate, Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden.
