An artist, curator, writer, and activist, Chicago-based Greg Sholette is a charter member of the artists’ collective REPOhistory and PAD/D, Political Art Documentation and Distribution. He recently directed CIRCULATION, a public art project about human blood, urban space, and medical technology ( In 1999 Sholette wrote “Authenticity 2: REPOhistory: the Anatomy of an Urban Art Project” for New Art Examiner. This essay responds to the question: how can an engaged, political art exist in the so-called “post-ironic” culture we now seem to be entering? A former curator of education for the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, Sholette is assistant professor and chair of the Master of Arts in Arts Administration Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
