I'm giving a talk/in conversation with artist Iván Arenas tonight at Hull-House in Chicago. It should be good, we're going to dialogue about the roles art plays in social movements, and possible nuggets of useful experience to draw from a wide-range of historical and geographic examples. More info about the event HERE.

"Join artists Josh MacPhee and Ivan Arenas for a conversation exploring the connections (and disjunctures) between art, culture and struggle. MacPhee, a Brooklyn-based artist, designer and activist, will present a slideshow based on the content of the newly released Signal: A Journal of International Political Graphics. Arenas, a Mexican-American scholar whose work focuses on the relationship between urban spaces and political subjects, will share insights from his work as an artist and scholar in Oaxaca, Mexico. Together, we will explore the complex ways that art and cultural production affects our communities and our struggles for equality and justice."
