Sumi-E brush gesture

Immersed in the intensity of social struggle, both physical and mediated, subjected to the stifling intention of power to define our existence in terms of wealth and recognition, is the pursuit of simple individual gestures trite and naive or human and necessary?

More Links I am looking at

Here are some links I have been looking at:

https://www.dallaspotteryinvitational.com/   I am hoping to attend this exhibition/sale and I would recommend it for anyone interested in collecting pottery.

https://sfai.org/residencies/  A friend of mine is applying for this residency. The focus of the residency relates to the social value of art, and art as a force for change in society.  Searching the artists and artist collective listed is an interesting entry into the world of socially focused content based art. It is also interesting to explore the Santa Fe Art Institute site to read about their mission and other activities.

http://www.themodern.org/interact-modern This is the blog page for the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

https://art.unt.edu/article/opportunities/2018/visiting-artist-roberto-lugo-platform-public-lecture This is a UNT advertisement for a lecture by Robert Lugo that I did not attend but I did watch is youtube lecture at NCECA. This page can connect you to his website and other information about Robert. He is another artist interested in social activism in his work.

Sometimes I wonder if my work does enough to engage social and cultural issues in the wider world.

In some ways generating objects and interactions out of material and formal issues  embodies an approach to the surrounding social structure that advocates for an attitude of curiosity, coexistence, and contribution to the community.
