“Culture Wars” discussion online


Culture Wars: Then and Now, a series of discussions and presentations exploring the issues of freedom of expression and public support of the arts, is now available online. The conference came in response to the recent controversy over the Smithsonian Institution’s “Hide/Seek” exhibition and the resulting congressional threats to remove funding for national arts programs (see our earlier post here). The conference was held March 26, 2011 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and was sponsored by Transformer, The National Coalition Against Censorship, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and College of Art + Design. Topics include: “Culture Wars Redux: What did we (what do we) consider offensive?” and “Give Me a Revolution: Artists’ Response to Censorship.”
