The Art of Participation – Randall Szott – Social Practice West

Posted in Uncategorized by dilettanteventures on 01/26/2009

I’m going to be on a panel at SFMOMA (2/07/09) called Social Practice West. It’s part of the events programing for The Art of Participation which purports to survey “how artists have engaged members of the public as essential collaborators in the art-making process.”

The panel will discuss the rise of  Social Practice MFA programs on the west coast. Students from those programs will give presentations from their perspective and panelists will act as respondents. I am especially eager to discuss the impact of professionalization on these practices.

I really feel sorry for the person who had to provide a legitimate sounding title for me and I can only imagine the trepidation around presenting my bio in its usual form. According to SFMOMA I’m a “writer.” Who knew?
