Gallery Talk: Intersections

May 12, 2017
Meet in Griffin Court
Free with museum admission

The theme for this month’s Intersections is Home and Housing.

The idea of "home" is often tied to personal history, sensory memories, as well as the type of housing a person has experienced. Join educators Nenette Luarca-Shoaf and Robert Smith III to explore the insights gained when artists meld the personal and political in their depictions of home and housing.

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.
