Marginalized Expression: Critical Perspectives on Art as a Tool for Oppression and Liberation

Wednesday, September 16, 2020 @ 12:50 pm - 2:00 pm

In our conversation with an artist and theorist, a legal practitioner, and a legal scholar, we will explore how artistic and creative expression can both combat and perpetuate racial oppression. Our panelists are invited to explain how creative expression and rules governing such forms have historically and currently been influenced by and used to reinforce racial injustice, discuss how art can effectively challenge white supremacy, and reflect upon the role that law can play in redressing marginalization and appropriation in the context of art. 

Panelists include California College of the Arts Professor Vreni Michelini-Castillo, Founding Partner of the Artistic Freedom Initiative Reza Mazaheri, and Boston College Law School Professor Anjali Vats.

Sponsored by Arts and Innovation Advocates (AIA), a new student organization at Berkeley Law that brings law students with a passion for the arts together to build a community and develop relevant skills in the field of art law. AIA seeks to provide resources and a space within the law school for students with creative backgrounds or interests in making art, as well as opportunities to engage in pro bono legal work for Bay Area artists who lack the resources to seek out legal assistance. AIA will provide its members with a community with which they can grow as creative, like-minded lawyers through events and gatherings revolving around the intersection of art and law.
