HALSEY TALKS | Art and Activism

Art and Activism

Traditionally, art and activism have occupied separate domains. Often, art’s ambiguity and open-endedness lay in contrast to activism’s clear messaging. In recent years, many artists have blurred the line between this supposed distinction, calling attention to issues in their work while making museums sites of resistance. How does art function as activism?

For this Halsey Talks, we will be joined by Kali Holloway, journalist and director of the Make It Right Project, a multimedia campaign dedicated to righting social justice wrongs. Holloway is currently organizing events around the country featuring readings, dance performances, and visual art engagements dedicated to illuminating Confederate monuments’ ties to white supremacy.


Halsey Talks are an ongoing series of roundtable discussions on intriguing concepts in art. While they may take advantage of exhibitions on view at the Halsey Institute, they are open-ended in nature. As a platform for a deeper understanding and discussion of fascinating ideas in art, Halsey Talks are open to all.
