Join artist Pope.L and curator Dieter Roelstraete as they discuss Pope.L’s contribution to Documenta 14, Flint Water and the Wrens campaign. Co-sponsored by the Richard and Mary L. Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry at the University of Chicago and the Open Practice Committee in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago.
This event is part of What’s Next: A five-hour marathon conversation and more on immigration, migration and home.
Brown People Are the Wrens in the Parking Lot is a project that is facilitated by artist and University of Chicago Department of Visual Arts faculty member William Pope.L and brings together faculty, students, staff and community members at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts to reflect on issues of connectedness, home and immigration. It is comprised of a set of seemingly impromptu interventions as well as an exhibition that will be on view from November 10, 2017 through January 7, 2018 in the Logan Center Gallery.
This project was created as a service to the community of the Logan Center and beyond.
