Black Enough? Black Representation in Contemporary Art Theory and Practice
Join us at the Experimental Station on Thursday, May 29, 2008 at 6:30pm for a candid conversation around the intersection of race, ethnicity, and aesthetics in contemporary art. How do we begin to unpack the complexity of race and respresentation as it relates to the art market? A thoughtful group of artists, curators, art historians and collectors will share with us their thoughts in a candid conversation with members of the arts community. Featuring Blake Bradford (Hyde Park Art Center), Huey Copeland (Northwestern University), Patric McCoy (Independent Collector & Member, Board of Directors-Diasporal Rhythms), Kymberly Pinder (The School of the Art Institute of Chicago), moderated by Makeba Dixon-Hill (The School of the Art Institute of Chicago). All are welcome. Bring questions...answers...soap boxes...lectures...and violins.
The event is FREE and open to the public, at Experimental Station, 6100 S. Blackstone Avenue.
'Black Enough: Black Representation in Contemporary Art Theory and Practice' is part of Representations: A Series on Culture, Politics and Aesthetics, and is made possible in part by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Illinois General Assembly.
