“How does the city of Chicago inspire the artists who live there? How is the architecture, history, and character of the city interpreted and reflected in the work of Chicago-based artists? Which parts of the city are most moving and motivational? In this episode, artists reveal the ways in which their communities ignite ideas for photographs, sculptures, and drawings, and how those communities are invited by the artists to become part of the artworks themselves. Featuring artists Nick Cave, Theaster Gates, Barbara Kasten, and Chris Ware.”
Associate professor Paula Wisotzki will be giving an introductory lecture about the film and hosting a Q&A session afterwards.
Admission to the screening is free to the general public.
