Campbell River Art Gallery

I am giving a little talk on new directions in artistic intervention at the Campbell River Art Gallery:

Here is a synopsis of what I will try to cover:

Recent phenomena such as the Occupy Movement and the rise of ‘hacker’ culture have provided unprecedented opportunity for artistic expression outside the traditional confines of galleries and museums. Such socially engaged practices often blur the distinctions between artists and their collaborators and bring up interesting questions of authorship and the shifting relationships between process and outcome. Using examples from his own work and that of others, Kellhammer will highlight some of these interesting artistic interventions into social and ecological territories and examine the role of the artist as advocate and instigator of autonomous social zones.
