Social Action


Also called Social Practice, contemporary artworks that take or encourage action around social or political issues, from the global financial crisis to immigration and global warming. Works are often in non-traditional mediums, such as posters, or take the form of participatory events led by collectives rather than single artists. The action can take various forms, from discussions or a general heightened awareness to practical solutions to the issue at hand.
