Opening Wednesday, December 2nd, at 6PM
The precarity of 2020 has brought American ideological conflict to a head. Against the glaring bias of American meritocracy, the corrosion of civil discourse and the rise of antisocialism and the sociopathic hero, is an appeal to empathy a viable strategy for resolving conflict, one that is predicated on ‘misunderstanding’?
DePaul Art Museum will host a conversation with artists Ayanah Moor, Nate Young, and Nyeema Morgan. Moor’s billboard installation for you is one of the current exhibitions at DPAM and Nate Young’s work is included in the Driehaus Museum exhibition A Tale of Today. Young’s poetic and reflective works are based primarily in sculpture and drawing. Moor’s interdisciplinary works are situated in image and text based intervention. Moderated by artist Nyeema Morgan, the artists will discuss the narrative and/or discursive use of text to connect subjects by empathetic means. [Text written by Nyeema Morgan]
