About this item
Motivated by her belief in the value of free expression that is guaranteed under the Constitution of the United States of America, Sheryl Oring’s I Wish to Say project has been helping citizens voice their concerns about the state-of-affairs in the US for over a decade now. In Activating Democracy Oring uses her own project as the starting point for exploring a series of issues tackled by artists working within the social practice genre of art. Featuring essays by contributors ranging from art historians and artists to those working in fields as diverse as poetry, literature, political science and architecture, the collection is intended to elucidate and unpack different frameworks employed by a wide spectrum of individuals working in a varied field. The juxtaposition of these perspectives will no doubt spark a dialogue among readers, and it is hoped that the book will serve as a resource and archive for innovative, cross-disciplinary ways of working that continue to transform the landscape of contemporary art.
