Artists' Books
18 × 26 × 2 cm

Open Engagement: Art and Social Practice 2007-2011 is a collection of essays, lecture transcriptions, interviews, photographs, and project documentation focused on socially engaged art that has emerged from the Open Engagement conference directed and founded by Jen Delos Reyes. Open Engagement explores the questions surrounding why artists have now, more than ever, turned towards ideas of community and social connections for creating their work. This book is a document of a selection of three years of conference materials that includes internationally known artists, curators, and scholars such as:

Mark Dion, Harrell Fletcher, Amy Franceschini, Julie Ault, Bruce High Quality Foundation, Fritz Haeg, Pablo Helguera, Nils Norman, and others.

This book wraps language around the burgeoning field, a critical text for those hoping to explore this subject. Each year this publication will be updated to include materials from the most recent conference.
