The ICP school is hosting tonight a conversation between artist Dread Scott and photographer Accra Shepp for a discussion on America’s current political crisis and artist responsibility to answer it. This encounter is the first conversation of a series entitled Radical Conversation: Making America Great.
The American artist Dread Scott (1965) is known for his work ‘What is the proper way to display a US flag‘, attacking the American flag as a symbol of power and inequalities. Back in 1989, this work was widely criticized by the US Senate and President George W. Bush Sr. Dread Scott described his work as “revolutionary art“, which dealt with racial problems, equality among American citizens, class and racial discrimination, police violence or American interference in international issues.
