Following the conference Social Intentions held in 2016, CCA: Glasgow will be publishing a book, entitled Forms of Action, that brings together texts by a variety of contributors on different interpretations and artistic practices that can be called social. Curator Viviana Checchia’s introduction will be accompanied by contributions from Stephanie Smith, Agnieszka Kilian, Haizea Barcenilla and Silvia Franceschini.
The book will be launched on 15 February, during the run of an exhibition with the same title, Forms of Action. The main focus of the exhibition is ‘the implementation of art and creativity as a way to address issues in society. […] the goal is to interrogate our current condition by asking how art can be used as a socially motivated and motivating tool for change. Artists in the exhibition include Kim Dhillon, Adelita Husni-Bey, Daniel Godínez Nivón, Katia Kameli, Dimitri Launder, Victoria Lomasko andAsunción Molinos Gordo. The exhibitions runs from 28 January to 12 March 2017.
