Gallery Talk: Intersections

February 9, 2018
Meet in Griffin Court
Free with museum admission

The theme for this month’s Intersections is Stereotype.

How have visual representations of the West formed a collective imagination around a crucial period in American history? Join educators Alice Boone and Sam Anderson-Ramos for a participatory conversation that explores artworks that both depict—and invent—the West. 

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.
