The Gathering: Outlaw as Hero
Thu, April 27, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM CDT
In response to Hélio Oiticica: To Organize Delirium, educator Kamilah Rashied and panelists George Aye, Nicole Marroquin, and Rebecca Stevens examine how their own practices disrupt institutional spaces, expanding beyond museum walls into urban landscapes.
Hélio Oiticica (1937–80) is arguably the most influential Latin American artist of the post–World War II period and is recognized for his significant contributions to the development of contemporary art. A relentless innovator always pushing the traditional boundaries of art, Oiticica moved rapidly and radically from early works influenced by European modernism to large-scale installations that were meant to be physically experienced and often to critique political and social issues.
This program will take place at the Art Institute of Chicago in Griffin Court. For more information visit: www.artic.edu/calendar
