Artist Talk with April Martin & Brooke Singer
Often, the image of a subversive political act can have as deep an impact on society as the act itself. In turn, powerful images often inspire activism. This program brings together interdisciplinary artist Brooke Singer (AIR '09) and filmmaker and videographer April Martin (AIR '09) to interrogate the relationship between art, democracy and activism as it relates to their current work. Singer's ongoing Superfund365 project makes visible the government's effort to clean up uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. Martin's activist art practice includes her first documentary film as well as a recent video she created for the clemency hearing of an Ohio prison inmate on death row. Singer and Martin will present works-in-progress and consider the effects and uses of activist art.
