Oct 8th 2022

“On Collaboration” is in conjunction with Krista Franklin’s exhibition Solo(s) at DePaul Art Museum. Solo(s) draws on the artist’s vast range of materials and references, intersecting poetics, popular culture, and the dynamic histories of the African Diaspora. Often referring to the performance of a single musician, the exhibition’s title, “Solo(s)” is instead guided by the artist’s commitment to collaboration with fellow artists, writers, and musicians. Franklin is joined by artist Cauleen Smith, who has collaborated with Franklin on multiple occasions. Drawing from structuralism, third world cinema, and science fiction, Smith creates short films, feature films, installations, and performances. Smith and Franklin’s conversation will be moderated by the exhibition’s curator Ionit Behar, PhD.

Presented by DePaul Art Museum in partnership with and generously supported by EXPO CHICAGO and DePaul’s Center for Black Diaspora.
