Art in the Market: Action Research and Participatory Art
Palavras-chave:Visual essay, Participatory Art, Popular education.
ResumoThis visual essay illustrates a process of community-based art as it unfolds from our experiences in the Art in the Market program. We expect to show readers salient dimensions of this work that render it a distinguished form of participatory action research. Weaving images and text, we examine the theoretical underpinnings of this praxis and examine the often mysterious process of creating art together with a community.
