SIGNS OF BAD WEATHER: RASHEED ARAEEN AND POST-1968 POLITICAL ART IN BRITAIN
In the summer of 1977, British-Pakastani artist Rasheen Araeen, against the backdrop of Britain's decade-long civic turmoil, engaged in a new project that brought together his former minimalist sculpture practice with the burgeoning medium of live art. This lecture will situate Araeen's performance as an outgrowth of his conception of and problems with modernism, as well as one example of the engagement of art and radical politics in Britain after 1968.
