On February 23, Creative Capital’s Director of Programs & Initiatives, Sean Elwood, moderated a program session with three Creative Capital grantees at the College Art Association’s 2012 Conference in Los Angeles. Embedded: A Social Practice in the Neighborhood included presentations and discussion with Cesar Cornejo (2009 Emerging Fields), Mario Ybarra, Jr. (2008 Film/Video) and Ted Purves (2005 Visual Arts). The artists each talked about their practices using their Creative Capital-supported projects (and others) to illustrate their experiences in working closely with communities to bring about change through creative engagement, embedding themselves in particular neighborhoods to realize social goals, build networks and affect cultural practices.
