LIFT Gallery at Greensboro College is exhibiting video documentation of social practice art projects for its show ENGAGED. The theme of the show is open and artworks can include community organizing, activism, environmentalism, intervention or performance but must blur the line between artist and audience. The videos selected for the show will be exhibited at LIFT from November 7 to December 3, 2014. Ten videos selected by the jury will be shown.

My collaborative work with Phil McCollam, “Demarcation: Cairns Shore” (2013), won 2nd place ($150) in ENGAGED.

Participating artists include William Paul Thomas, Ellen Mueller, Sheryl Oring, Matt Garcia, Kasia Ozga, Larry Caveney, Angela Wilcocks, Aaron Nemec, Patrick Lichty, and Maeve Jackson

LIFT gallery supports emerging artists working in performance, video and social practice art through exhibition and an online database of artists’ work. The aim of the gallery is to promote scholarship of contemporary art through a collaborative process of engagement of students, faculty and the public. LIFT gallery is part of Greensboro College, a four-year, independent, coeducational liberal-arts college, located in Greensboro, North Carolina.
