Do ethics equal aesthetics?

This panel discussion brings together three artists who challenge the artist’s relationship to audience, subject matter and institutions, so that we can explore the ethics of socially engaged art. Are artists working outside the gallery free to create or confront ethical dilemmas? How do audiences perceive the ethics of a socially engaged art project?  Join us with your own questions!
