Engine for Art, Democracy and Justice launches, Fall 2020
In collaboration with the Frist Art Museum and Fisk University, Dr. María Magdalena Campos-Pons launched “Art, Democracy and Justice” in 2018 as part of her appointment as the Cornelius Vanderbilt Endowed Chair Professor of Fine Arts. This initiative addressed the difficulties and entangled discourses of the everchanging Art, imperfect Democracy, and unbalanced Justice in America and particularly in the South.
“Art, Democracy and Justice” presented the first in a series of programs with aims to inspire conversations about art’s potential to bring about positive social change, particularly with regards to economic inequity, political participation, and barriers relating to race, gender, and other markers of identity.
Initiated by Dr. María Magdalena Campos-Pons, as part of her appointment as the Cornelius Vanderbilt Endowed Chair Professor of Fine Arts, EADJ “Engine for Art, Democracy and Justice” is a platform for academic creative and social exploration to develop new knowledge and new practices.
The 2020 EADJ program, Living in Common in the Precarious South(s), will offer a set of vibrant discussions, examining the consequences of social and historical inequities on the southern imaginary as seen in art from Latin America, Africa, South Europe, and the American South. The program includes 8 episodes, which will be hosted as webinars, throughout the Fall 2020 semester.
