Artist, activist, and fair wage campaigner Andrea Bowers will discuss the role of activism within her artistic practice. Invoking American history, contemporary political issues, and protest, Bowers’ work gives visibility to the plight of excluded groups, addressing a range of issues, from environmental policy to labor conditions in the art world, including tree sitting in the California forest and a critique of the hiring practices of Frieze Art Fair in 2013 for outsourcing non-union workers.
