Open Engagement, the conference for social practice art-makers opened ran for three days last weekend. The busiest day, Sunday, included presentations by Sara Reisman, Edgar Arceneaux with Kevin Krapf, Jay Erker, Piero Passacantando, Aliya Bonar, and Deana Haggag with Ginevra Shay.
Ana Casas Broda’s photographs of her young boys suckling on her breasts spark quite a bit of discussion. Her work is part of a larger show on motherhood called Home Truths at The Museum of Contemporary Photography. Also discussed: William J. O’Brien at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
