    Bringing together leading theorists of contemporary art and culture, curators and artists, How Can Art Affect Political Change? addresses the complex relationship between creative practice and political activism. The wave of Arab Spring revolutions and the growth of the global Occupy movements have ignited a reassessment of the intersection of art, economics and politics. Key presentations by Andrea Geyer, Marisa Jahn, Josh MacPhee, Mitch McEwen, Yates McKee and Benjamin Young examine the shifting parameters of socially engaged art and theory within the context of these emerging political events. The discussion is introduced and moderated by Natalie Musteata. The panel is organized in conjunction with the exhibition UNREST: Revolt against Reason, curated by Natalie Musteata, currently on view at apexart until October 27, 2012. The exhibition presents eight contemporary artists—mounir fatmi, Claire Fontaine, Shilpa Gupta, Iman Issa, Tala Madani, Ahmet Öğüt, Tomáš Rafa, and Alexandre Singh—who critically engage with issues of inequity, conflict, and instability in recent history.

            Apexart, a not-for-profit arts space commissioned 5 directors to make a 'commercial' of an artist. I was assigned to do a piece on David Diao who's work is both visual and conceptual. He was reluctant to partcipate. We found a common ground by basing it on a concept parallel to his work, appropriating a Cecil Beaton fashion photo appropriating a Jackson Pollock painting. The dialog between the models is appropriated from reviews of Diao's work and references to race that figure in his work. Written, Directed and edited by Howard Silver; conceived by Howard Silver and David Diao; shot by Joel Fendelman.
