2016 SUMMIT SPEAKERS

 

 

Creative Time Summit DC: Occupy the Future was held at DC’s historic Lincoln Theatre. Occurring in the nation’s capital just weeks before the 2016 Presidential Election, the Creative Time Summit DC took this important moment to collectively consider what it might mean to radically transform the current state of democracy. Around the world both the left and the right are making their dissatisfaction with the center known, setting the stage for a virulent electoral season. The 2016 Summit offered a platform for citizen-led strategies and grassroots movements working within, as well as disrupting, electoral politics.

NYC 2015 SUMMIT SPEAKERS

 

 

Continuing the dialogue started at the Summit held at the Venice Biennale in August, the New York Summit was dedicated to education and other ways knowledge is disseminated and obtained. The Curriculum NYC focused on the effects of specific education policies in the United States. We explored the relationship between knowledge and geopolitics, pedagogical art practices, omissions in contemporary curricula, and political issues such as the re-segregation of public schools and student debt.

VENICE 2015 SUMMIT SPEAKERS

 

 

The 7th Creative Time Summit took place within the 56th International Art Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia, All the World’s Futures, curated by Okwui Enwezor. The Venice Art Biennale offered a unique opportunity to gather an international, interdisciplinary community to consider how knowledge is produced and how it comes into contact with civil society. Throughout the Summit, conversations on curriculum examined the social, infrastructural, administrative, and private conditions under which knowledge is produced and intertwined with social contracts.

2012 SUMMIT SPEAKERS

 

 

The 2012 Creative Time Summit–held near the one-year anniversary of the birth of the Occupy movement–addressed the extreme wealth disparity that continues to define the global economy and politics. Presenters at the 2012 Creative Time Summit, which was titled “Confronting Inequity,” reflected upon recent upheavals in the international political and economic climate, focusing specifically on wealth inequity and the ways in which it erodes democracy.

2011 SUMMIT SPEAKERS

 

 

The third annual Creative Time Summit launched the exhibition Living as Form, the first-ever survey of socially engaged art, which was itself informed by the range of work presented at previous Summits. With more than 100 projects on display, selected by an international team of twenty curatorial advisors, eight newly commissioned works, and a web archive of more than 350 projects, the exhibition-was conceived as a broad attempt to take stock of socially engaged art. It was first presented at the historic Essex Street Market and, in a partnership with International Curators International, continues to travel to venues across the globe.

2010 SUMMIT SPEAKERS

 

 

At “Revolutions in Practice 2,” the 2010 Creative Time Summit, a diverse international group of socially engaged artists presented specific projects to the general public and discussed a critical issue raised at the previous year’s conference: the idea that socially engaged art “preaches to the choir.” If this is true, then how do we assess the success of socially engaged art? How do we define the purpose of the work? What, in fact, is the “choir,” and is it bound by the racial, geographic, gender, economic, and post-colonial lines that continue to haunt the field itself? As the passionate dialogue unfolded, it became eminently clear that issues of audience are a critical element of any discussion of this work.

2009 SUMMIT SPEAKERS

 

 

The first of what would be the annual Creative Time Summit took place at the New York Public Library. Titled “Revolutions in Public Practice,” it was devoted to exploring a growing but still difficult-to-define artistic practice. Called variously socially engaged art, social aesthetics, participatory art, dialogic art, political art, and other names, the practice had been growing for some two decades and had produced some of the most exciting work to be experienced anywhere., despite existing outside of museums and galleries. The Summit was intended to fill the need for practitioners of this art to meet with others, share ideas, and learn–to create a community. to discover the methodologies and strategies behind this work, which addresses social injustice and oppression, and touches people, places, homes, and daily routines.
