*Art and Social Practice
Through the use of various strategies including urban interventions, utopian
proposals, guerrilla architecture, public art,
social sculpture, project-based community practice, interactive media,
service dispersals, and street performance,
the primary material of social practice is person-to-person exchange,
interaction, or participation.
These situations, organizations and events can involve various media
including photography, video, drawing, text, sound, sculpture, and performance
Within the art making process, the practice emphasizes people in relationships
to each other
and their surroundings, focusing on engagement and accountability between
the audience and the artist.
Breaking away from the conventions of any particular structured aesthetic
theory, social practice maintains the intention of creativity
while incorporating elements of sociology, anthropology, social work,
environmentalism, journalism and community outreach.
