In this election-year editorial series for the Walker Art Center, I invited artists across disciplines to share their thinking on "lowercase p politics"—not the horserace of electoral politics, but the personal convictions about community, power, and participation that undergird their art and lives.
Interview subjects and topics include:
Press for Lowercase P: Artists and Politics
"Too many modern and contemporary art museums retreat into an apolitical bunker. ... I love this: In an effort to mark the political season, Walker Art Center web guru Paul Schmelzer has launched “Lowercase P: Artists & Politics” on the Walker’s website."
