Dread Scott and Ryan Wong discuss Social Justice at ICI

“Some Thoughts on Culture and Revolution” takes place tonight at Independent Curator’s International with revolutionary artist Dread Scott and writer/exhibition producer Ryan Wong. Having recently worked with Dread on a project for More Art in which he walked against a firehose at full blast, evocative of victims of police brutality during protests and marches, he is very eloquent, well spoken and committed to a widespread understanding of the need for public art focused on social justice.

From 6:30-8 pm tonight at ICI  Curatorial Hub (401 Broadway, suite 1620) Dread and Ryan will talk about protest and socially-driven art in the public realm and art present within the art market, exploring the divisions between these two and their role in sparking public debate and conversation. This free program will present revolution art as a means of encouraging discussion on art’s role in public consciousness. Join in the conversation tonight at ICI!
