Gallery Talk: Intersections

June 9, 2017
Meet in Griffin Court
Free with museum admission

The theme for this month’s Intersections is Change.

How might art — even a work from a different time or place — prompt reflection and help us grapple with the changes we fear, hope, or expect? Join educators Nenette Luarca-Shoaf and Becky Manuel for a participatory conversation that explores artistic depictions of change and mindful ways of engaging with them.

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.
