Opening Thursday, November 30th, from 6PM - 7PM
Conversation: Karen Greenwalt, Katja Rivera, and Sherwin Ovid at 6PM on November 30, 2017 at Gallery 400.
“Traduttore, Traditore” curators and UIC Art History Phd Canidates Karen Greenwalt and Katja Rivera join UIC MFA alumus Sherwin Ovid to discuss their interdepartmental relationships during their formative time at UIC. Ovids inclusion in the exhibition demonstrates a full-circle with their relationships evolving from graduate to professional colleagues.
This conversation is in partnership with UIC’s MFA Open Studios and the “Traduttore, Traditore” on view through December 16, 2017.
“Traduttore, Traditore” is the pilot exhibition in a new program at Gallery 400 at the University of Illinois at Chicago to support the production of in-depth exhibitions developed out of the research work of PhD candidates or recent PhD graduates of UIC’s Department of Art History. UIC Art History candidates are in the process of producing significant new scholarship on a wide range of art and cultural practices. Exhibitions developed out of that work bring that new thought to a broader audience, while providing the PhD candidates mentorship in curatorial practice and the opportunity for engaged publishing in exhibition catalogues.
