rtists across Chicago have been responding to the impact of the public health and political crises almost in real-time, creating work that both intervenes in and transforms our understanding of the events around us. Presented by CHF, a panel of contemporary Chicago artists including Bob Faust and Sadie Woods talk with art historian Greg Foster-Rice about how their work is meeting the moment—and how it connects to artistic responses during previous periods of discord. Join Faust, Woods, and Foster-Rice for a conversation about the role of art and the artist in times of crisis.
This program is presented as part of Art Design Chicago Now, an initiative funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art that amplifies the voices of Chicago’s diverse creatives, past and present, and explores the essential role they play in shaping the now.
