Gallery Conversation: Intersections

June 8, 2018
Meet in Griffin Court
Free with museum admission

The theme for this month's Intersections is Photography and Community Identity. 

How does a community use visual language to counter oppression and affirm its people? Join educators Kristin Enright and Sam Anderson-Ramos in the exhibition, Never a Lovely So Real: Photography and Film in Chicago, 1950-1980, for a participatory conversation reflecting on the integral role of photography in celebrating black identity and culture.

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.
