Issue 3: Artists Challenging Normativity

"Artists challenging mainstream habits of seeing and doing that exclude the lived experience and creative potential of large swaths of people who have been systematically oppressed by social norms and capitalism.

A Blade of Grass provides resources to artists who demonstrate artistic excellence and serve as innovative conduits for social change. They evaluate the quality of work in this evolving field by fostering an inclusive, practical discourse about the aesthetics, function, ethics and meaning of socially engaged art that resonates within and outside the contemporary art dialogue."
