William Pope.L is a black American artist who teaches in Maine. He is best known for his piece Eracism, a consideration of the social, economic and personal factors that allow American racism to exist. Variously called a lecture, a confession, a rant and an endurance test, this work treads an edgy line between explosive invective and a sympathetic just-plain-folks attempt to work out the details of the business of living.

Interventionism examines the ways in which performance has entered uninvited the realms of politics and the social. The panel brings together a number of artists who have produced work which has commandeered public space and discourse to a variety of ends.
