Gallery Talk: Intersections

November 10, 2017
Meet in Griffin Court
Free with museum admission

The theme for this month’s Intersections is Speaking Out.

When have you felt the need to speak out? To whom did you look for inspiration? Prompted by the resurgence of protest signs and social media as platforms for communicating one's beliefs and experiences, we’ll explore the ways that artists have used their work to respond to current events and injustice.

In this interactive 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. Facilitators 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.
