Artists Respond: A Symposium

Friday, March 15, 2019, 9am – 5:30pm EDT
Join us for a day of discussions and lectures on topics related to Artists Respond: American Art and the Vietnam War, 1965–1975. A group of distinguished scholars provides insights into how artists of the Vietnam War era sought to engage—with their current moment, with the public sphere, and with politics. Five artists whose works are in the exhibition—including Rupert García, Hans Haacke, and Martha Rosler—also speak, addressing their varied experiences of the war period.
More information, including the conference program, webcast link, and speakers bios, can be found on the Symposium page.

Please note the location of this program at SAAM, 8th and G streets, NW.
