The Floating Lab Collective will present projects centered in socially engaged art practices. The Floating Lab Collective experiments with the aesthetics of direct action in crafting responses to specific places, communities, issues, and circumstances. Projects of the Floating Lab incorporate social research and active public engagement to work with/in communities local, nationally and internationally. In this talk, several members of the Floating Lab will discuss the evolution of cross-disciplinary, multi-generational projects in the context of the George Mason University's School of Art and how students and professors embrace collaboration and activism and how these ideas function in a contemporary context.
