Gallery Talk: Intersections

April 13, 2018
Meet in Griffin Court
Free with museum admission

The theme for this month's Intersections is Migration. 

The question of migration around the world has rarely been so fraught. Join educators Paulina Lopez and Sam Anderson-Ramos in the exhibition, Mounira Al Solh: I strongly believe in our right to be frivolous, for a participatory conversation that grapples with notions of foreignness, place, compassion, and home.

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.
