Social Practices

SOCIAL PRACTICES/LIVE ART/COMMUNITY CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT/CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

1. OVERVIEW: THE FIELD OF SOCIAL PRACTICES
“Social practices incorporate art strategies as diverse as urban interventions, utopian proposals, guerrilla architecture, "new genre" public art, social sculpture, project-based community practice, interactive media, service dispersals, and street performance. The field focuses on topics such as aesthetics, ethics, collaboration, persona, media strategies, and social activism, issues that are central to artworks and projects that cross into public and social spheres.
These varied forms of public strategy are linked critically through theories of relational art, social formation, pluralism, and democracy. Artists working within these modalities either choose to co-create their work with a specific audience or propose critical interventions within existing social systems that inspire debate or catalyse social exchange.”
