Contemporary art as a form of protest revolutionized the art world. The boundaries of how art was defined were pushed beyond something only the "elite" could appreciate, and allowed the masses full access. The Protest Panel is an exploration of how protest and politically engaged work plays a significant role in contemporary art.The panellists will examine how artists and curators use contemporary art as a platform to raise awareness, to make a statement, to tell cultural, social and political stories.
