Participation in Practice: Artists as Ally, Presentation by Alecia Neo (Singapore), artist and co-founder, Brack

Description

Through the sharing of diverse projects which she has initiated independently, as well as via arts platform Brack, Alecia Neo reflects upon ways in which artists practice cooperation, participation, sustainability, responsibility and authorship. In Neo's projects, a diverse range of participants, observers and collaborators ranging from non-profit organisations, youths living with visual impairment, to residents in public housing estates and caregivers, are engaged in a creative, experiential, and relational process and are given platforms to to develop their own projects and ideas. The analysis explores how these art projects and participants raise questions about access, power and social relations, bringing insights into discusiion of inclusivity, empowerment and education. Outside of an artistic framework, these projects are often at the mercy of interprretation from all sides. Hence, these artistic engagements also explore the potentials and limitations of artists in generating shifts or transformation in society through artistic interventions.
