Just Art Biennial Conference

CO-ORGANIZED BY KEVIN HAMILTON AND TIM LOWLY Much art that concerns itself with justice exists in propositions. Such work proposes and enacts new ways of living in relation to one another – sometimes through familiar means and media, and other times in ways that are utterly disorienting. Experiencing such propositions can often create a place of discord among members of both art and justice-oriented communities. I’m lecturing and participating on a panel that will address justice and representation in art. This conference is sponsored by Christian in the Visual Arts.
