An Incomplete Archive of Activist Art
The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation Volume 1: Discourse Volume 2: Art
Consisting of two volumes, the publication highlights the emergence of a cultural shift, addressing art’s role in the formation of both community and justice. Volume one features essays, thematic round tables with cultural producers, and newly commissioned text-based artworks. The second volume documents exhibitions at The 8th Floor, the Foundation’s exhibition and event space and selections from the Rubins’ Private Collection. This compendium is conceived to be a critical resource for those interested in socially engaged art and includes contributions from leading artists, scholars, critics and activists.
