Opening Sunday, September 22nd, from 11AM - 12:30PM
In conjunction with the EXPO CHICAGO (International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art), please join Intuit for a special brunch and conversation with artist Marvin Tate and Alison Amick, curator of Intuit’s exhibition Looking at You From a Distance Not Too Far: Work by Marvin Tate. Tate and Amick will discuss the artist’s practice and explore themes embedded in his assemblage works related to storytelling, personal narrative and political commentary.
Marvin Tate is a performance poet, lyricist, published author, collected visual artist and educator. He is known for his biographical art in the form of assemblage, portraits and landscapes composed of found objects and fragments from everyday life. Finding beauty and subtlety in everyday life, objects, and people is inherent in Tate’s narrative, which speaks of personal and family history while addressing a broader collective memory through social and political commentary. Tate’s work will be on view at Intuit August 15-October 27, 2019.
Light breakfast provided.
