In challenging times, contemporary art can be a vehicle for exploring difficult ideas, presenting alternate perspectives, or prompting social change. McColl Center alumni artists Maya Gurantz and Marcus Kiser and Detroit native artist John Sims use video, performance, and digital media to confront societal and historical practices around gender, race, and identity. Across mediums, these encounters can initiate healthy dialogue and productive debate. Local curator Jonell Logan moderates the discussion on art that questions the social, political, and cultural practices that isolate, suppress, and divide us.
