Nov. 4, 2009: Visions & Voices presents: Art, Culture, Politics: A Conversation with Shepard Fairey

Join communication professor Sarah Banet-Weiser for a conversation with Shepard Fairey, a contemporary artist, graphic designer and political and social activist. He emerged from the skateboarding scene in the mid-1990s and has since established his own "brand" as a cultural entrepreneur. His iconic images, like the OBEY artwork and the Obama "HOPE" poster, are central elements of a contemporary cultural and creative economy. As a cultural entrepreneur of the current era, Fairey has uniquely tapped into those relationships that historically have seemed so vexing—politics, consumption and marketing. Fairey represents a new kind of cultural producer, at home with commerce and cultural politics simultaneously. In a lively conversation, Shepard Fairey will discuss art, politics and consumer culture.
