What does it mean for art to be socially engaged? Can art help us find the vision to move through today’s world?

This audience-participatory installation examines the tensions, fears, and illusions promoted by the corporate media and the stories of individuals struggling to make sense of this economic and political moment, while inviting viewers to participate in a game that playfully explores the perils and rewards of activism. Beverly Naidus’s art practice intertwines the roles of activist, educator, writer, and interdisciplinary artist.

Throughout the continent of Africa, people use cloth to speak for them. Whether the fabric represents religious affiliation, age, class status, ethnic membership, or political association, what one wears is one’s identity. Woven or dyed, imported or locally produced, wrapped, tied, or tailored—all clothing speaks clearly in the many African languages. Demonstrating ancient traditions or contemporary fads, African peoples use cloth to celebrate the vibrancy of life’s rituals from birth to death. Co-curated by Philip Peek, professor emeritus of anthropology at Drew University, and Anthropology of Religion, Ritual, and Myth students.

What is it like to work as part of an artist collective?

The Beehive Collective has traveled to and worked with groups around the world, translating complex global stories into collaboratively drawn images that take on a life of their own. Their most recently printed graphic, Mesoamérica Resiste, was nine years in the making. This large-format narrative illustration tells stories of grassroots organizing and community resilience from Mexico to Colombia and also celebrates cultural and ecological diversity. This exhibit will inspire us to imagine the diverse ways that the arts can motivate and activate local and global communities. Curated by the PSU Museum Studies class, led by Professor of Art History Jayme Yahr.
