Join us October 13 as we host a public celebration of art and community across the PRH site! A new Round of installations opens, highlighting artists from across the country, and activating several blocks of our site with art, music and family friendly activities that showcase the culture and history of the beautiful Third Ward community.
Round 48: Beyond Social Practice takes its title from the Social Practice.Social Justice symposium organized to celebrate PRH’s 25th anniversary. Through this ongoing exploration of how social practice is defined, who defines it and what it means for artists, collectives and institutions, Round 48 brings together artists deeply engaged in collaborative practices that speak to social issues related to identity, politics, and activism. “Social practice" emerged from academia to encapsulate the scope of community-based and socially engaged methods that artists have utilized for decades. As with the symposium, Round 48 looks to the multitude of forms that “social practice” takes in contemporary art, exploring organic efforts that move beyond the name and elevate the spirit of socially engaged art through their actions.
Round 48 Artists:
The Design Studio for Social Intervention
From a holistic recreation center to connecting with communities in other countries, the featured work highlights the critical role that artists play in shaping and framing socio-political issues while demonstrating their ties to various social justice movements and strategies.
