Panel Discussion: Practices of Care

@ DePaul Art Museum

935 W Fullerton Ave, Chicago, IL 60614

Opening Thursday, March 16th, from 6PM - 7PM

On view through Sunday, April 2nd

“Practices of Care” brings together a group of artists, educators, community organizers, and healthcare professionals for a conversation about art, activism, and care. With a particular focus on projects that emphasize the experiences of GLBTQ youth of color, this conversation will include presentations by the artists Theodore (ted) Kerr and Tiona McClodden (both featured in the exhibition “One day this kid will get larger”), as well as Chicago-based practitioners Bonsai Bermudez (Executive & Artistic Director of Youth Empowerment Performance Project) and Jacqueline Boyd (Founder of The Care Plan). Under consideration will be the limits and possibilities of visual art production to enact social and political change, the history and aesthetics of community-centered care programs, and the important role voices of youth play in shaping collective visions of the future.
