Halsey Talks: Utopias


With Cry Joy Park: Gardens of Dark and Light, Jennifer Wen Ma explores the idea of utopia—how, for whom, and by whom they are constructed. As many artists before her have shown, using art to probe and attempt to create utopic conditions proves challenging and even paradoxical.

What is a utopia? Can art be utopian in nature? Does art make the world a better place, and if so, does that make art utopian? Join us as we discuss these questions and more at Halsey Talks.
