Do ethics equal aesthetics?
This panel discussion brings together three artists – Wafaa Bilal, Andrea Geyer, and Dread Scott – who challenge the artist’s relationship to audience, subject matter and institutions, so that we can explore the ethics of socially engaged art. Are artists working outside the gallery free to create or confront ethical dilemmas? How do audiences perceive the ethics of a socially engaged art project? The conversation will be moderated by Tom Finkelpearl, Executive Director of the Queens Museum.
