In/Out: Time, Pacing, and Perspective in Socially-Engaged Art

Friday July 31st and Saturday, August 1st, 2015

Welcome to In/Out. Presented by Moore’s Graduate Social & Studio Practice department in collaboration with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, this two day-long symposium focusing on selected case studies from local, national and international contexts that highlight socially-engaged art from multiple vantage points. This conversation centers on the notion that time is an artistic medium that links many creative community-based projects. We will explore through a variety of forums both in formal settings and out at site visits the ways time can also be leveraged as a finite resource, conceptual frame, mode of building relationships, historical referent, or an organizational principle. Special attention will be given to the subject of time commitment as an often invisible medium that ties the diverse range of complex case studies together.  Thank you for joining us today and look for future In/Out gatherings!
