Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla approach visual art as a set of experiments. Believing that art can function as a catalyst for social change, the artists solicit active participation and critical responses from their viewers. The artists’ emphasis on cooperation and activism have led them to develop hybrid art forms—sculptures presented solely through video documentation, digitally manipulated photographs, and public artworks generated by pedestrians.
Allora & Calzadilla are featured in the Season 4 episode “Protest” of the Art21 series “Art in the Twenty-First Century”.
