Collaborative Art: What criteria Should We Use to Evaluate it?

What criteria should we use to evaluate socially engaged art?

Earlier this year, in an article for Artforum magazine, London-based critic Claire Bishop raised provocative questions and poked at the critical status quo about the discourse surrounding what she terms, "relational" practices — socially engaged art, community-based art, experimental communities, dialogic art, littoral art, participatory, interventionist, research-based and collaborative art.

I interviewed Bishop about her ideas on the critical dialogue surrounding socially engaged art for Community Arts Network. You can find it posted here.
