Activism

Summarize the main concerns of their work (based on these materials) and set them in relation to other artists we have looked in this class. Where do you see overlaps of interest? How are the artists engaging their viewers? How are they thinking about space and place? What connections can you draw between these artists (the artist you are focusing on) and other work we have looked at? As always, I am looking for you to be thoughtful in your reflection, to be clear and specific in the qualities you are discussing — whether those qualities relate to ideas or to specific materials and aesthetic choices around process.  Rafa Esparza • Start with a video describing his work inspired by adobe and the Los Angeles River: https://whitney.org/media/513 • Then read this exhibition brochure from his show last year at MASS MoCA, “Staring at the Sun”: https://4bqtf234d34a2gxuu749ctvy-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/RafaEsparza_English.pdf • Then watch his artist talk, presented by the Hammer Museum on November 19th — note, this talk is VERY LONG; you could watch half of it (though it’s really good!):  Play Video Olafur Eliasson • Start with the Tate Museum’s overview of his project The Weather.
