This event is a component of In Acts, a group exhibition inspired by the summit that will bring international artists to the University of Chicago’s campus later this month to ask: What is an artistic practice of human rights? In Acts provides a setting for artworks by Lola Arias, Jelili Atiku, Tania Bruguera, Zanele Muholi, Carlos Javier Ortiz, and Laurie Jo Reynolds, who advance human rights discourse and policy through their art.
