Curated with support by Theaster Gates, recipient of the inaugural Vera List Center Prize for Art and Politics, this exhibition and forum are the culmination of The New School’s engagement with the artist and his work. It offers a view into how the artist creates synergies within his work, and examines the complex ways of creating and maintaining an expanded studio practice rooted in institutional engagement, object making, and the production of space. The installation includes drawings, videos, and a rickshaw, inspired by visits to Haiti and Mexico, and related to Dorchester Projects, a space for artistic production on Chicago’s South Side.
