Taking, and then teaching Art and Activism changed my view of the role art can play in a community. Much of my work in graduate school focused on gathering groups of individuals to partake in photographic performances, culminating in large photographic prints made of hundreds of portraits of the participants. Engaging people in art making is alway exciting and rarely predictable. Recently I’ve been working with Dale Fredrickson to create a series of artistic meditations on a theme. These take the form of performances with 10″ x 40″ images as backgrounds. We riff on ideas of community and cooperation, using photographs, paintings, and interactive performance as the media. Our goal is to engage communities in discourse regarding community, and the outcomes have been astounding.
