Artists Who Confront Violence: Lecture with Christian L. Frock

When: Saturday June 29, 2013 at 2pm

Where: 925 Mission Street SF CA 94103

Saturday June 29, 2013 – 2pm

In conjunction with Intersection’s current exhibition Evidence: Artistic Responses to the Drug Cartel Wars on view through August 31, 2013 in the gallery, independent curator and writer Christian L. Frock presents a slide lecture that surveys artists who confront violence in their work and broadly considers the ways contemporary artists cultivate agency against injustice. Frock is an independent writer and curator whose work focuses on the intersection of art, politics, and the ways artists intervene in public space. These themes are evident in three strands of work: freely distributed writing published online, teaching and public lectures, and collaborative projects under the auspices of Invisible Venue, the independent curatorial enterprise she founded and has directed since 2005. Her writing has been featured in Art&Education, Art Practical, art ltd., Fillip, KQED Arts, NPR.org, SFMOMA Open Space, SFArts.org, and USA Today.
