Opening Friday, April 21st, from 1PM - 3PM
From 1-3PM on Friday at Weinberg/Newton Gallery, join Open Engagement 2017 and gallery representatives for a walk-through of our exhibition, In Acts. The exhibition forwards the perspectives of locally- and internationally-engaged artists whose work questions how creative labor can widen the vistas of advancing human rights.
Afterward, from 4-6PM, head to the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago for an event co-organized by In Acts artist Laurie Jo Reynolds and Lynne Johnson, titled: We Shouldn’t Have Policies We Are Afraid to Talk About: A Symposium on Public Crime Registries.
The symposium will take place at:
Lobby, School of Social Service Administration
University of Chicago
969 E. 60th Street | Chicago, IL 60637

These events are associated with In Acts, Weinberg/Newton Gallery’s 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.
