For artist elin o’Hara slavick, art isn’t a commodity, it’s a tool for activism. As a professor of studio art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, she uses art to inspire her students to think in new ways. Hear her discuss her exhibition exploring the aftermath of war. Slavick has exhibited her work across the U.S. and Europe as well as in Cuba, Hong Kong, Scotland, England and Canada. Teaching, organizing and using her art to inform the community are common threads in slavick’s work, following her philosophy that no art or education is politically neutral. In her nine years teaching at UNC, she has worked to challenge her students’ ideas about art, and has pushed them to relate their own experiences to the outside world, stressing the importance of free expression.
