Park McArthur: Ramps

In this conversation between Park McArthur and Jennifer Burris in BOMB Magazine, we are asked to think about access to spaces, social infrastructures, and the relationship of art to activist concerns. In light of the show that opens soon in the UTA Gallery, this is an interesting article to consider. How does art reach outside itself? I know that I have listened to a number of graduates voicing their concern that art doesn’t feel like it participates directly enough in the immediate political issues that seem to ask for our help. McArthur and Burris dig into what it means to be an artist working for change with a personal stake in what seems like an impossible task of structural reform.
