Gallery Talk: Intersections

November 11, 2016
Meet in Griffin Court
Free with museum admission

The theme for this month's Intersections is "Gendered Bodies." Join museum educators Nenette Luarca-Shoaf and Robert Smith III for a conversation to consider: What does it mean to "perform" a gendered identity? How do artists use a range of strategies to represent gendered bodies and engage with the role of gender in our society?

In this new interactive lecture series, the Art Institute’s encyclopedic collection serves as a catalyst for conversations about urgent social questions and current events. Come ready to participate and create community through dialogue about art. Educators select featured artworks and post them here in advance of each discussion in order to be responsive to an ever-changing world.    

Visit the calendar to view upcoming Intersections programs on the second Friday of each month.
