360 Degrees: Art beyond Borders
September 27, 2008–June 16, 2009
360 Degrees: Art beyond Borders brings together the Art Institute, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Poetry Foundation, and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs for a globe-spanning array of concerts, lectures, performances, readings, and symposia. In tandem with exhibitions pulled from the Art Institute’s encyclopedic collection, leading museum directors, renowned musicians, international poets, and cultural leaders explore the role of art and culture around our ever-shrinking globe. This season will offer visitors the singular opportunity to see, hear, and consider the riches the world has to offer, all under one roof.
