Link 15 Apr 1 note Is social art practice a starting point for addressing social problems or a distraction from them?»

deandreanichols:

Project Row Houses is a housing development program located in Houston’s Third Ward that was created by artist, Rick Lowe. It is one of the most-lauded examples of social art practice because of its creative means of preserving the row houses and addressing the issue of public housing in the primary Black neighborhood. However, Black Houstonians suffere doubly today for housing than when the project first started, which prompts the question, “Is this strand of art a starting point for addressing social problems, or a distraction that keeps us from seeing their true extent?”

Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”
