Until June 2009, visitors to the Art of Engagement online network will be introduced to a series of innovative artists who complicate labels and expand possibilities for engaged art practices. Curator Rajni Shah describes her aims: "What I really want to do is question the idea of what an ‘engaged practice' is, and where that can go, as well as to place alongside each other practices that are located very differently. I'm also keen to spark new conversations between practitioners in different places, to encourage us to find inspiration in each other and to see how our different practices might translate helpfully onto different soils and planes of thought." The artists include: Jean-Marie Mauclet and Gwylene Gallimard, Tim Jeeves, Doran George, Glas(s) Performance, John Jordan, and Bobby Baker.
