What is the role of Socially Conscious Artwork, and how do artists use specific materials and methods to translate their social and political concerns? This guided tour tour will explore a variety of socially conscious art, and ask how the materials and approach relate to the subject matter. The work we will view makes a statement about the human condition with the subject matter and materials used in the artwork. While each artist is working in vastly different media, including social practice, sculpture, music, installation, found objects, and public interventions, they are attempting to raise awareness and educate about social and political issues.
