MFA Professor Deborah F. Lawrence leads a panel discussion with artist
Susan N. Platt on “The New Agit Prop: Artists Expose Political Fictions” at the
99th annual College Art Association conference in New York City on February 10. Scholars from five
universities are participating in this discussion of how different art media
are used for political ends. Lawrence, whose art has appeared in Art in America,The Washington Post, Seattle Times,
Rolling Stone, and Time Magazine,
has exhibited widely throughout the United States, and is a Creative Capital Fellowship Grantee.
She has been on the faculty in the MFA in Arts Leadership program since 2009.
“I use collage as a political and psychological
tool,” she said, “and find support in the historical tradition of
collage as a medium which originated out of the political outrage and
detachment experienced by European artists following World War I.”
