Urban Art and the Block: Urban nature symposium

03/02/2018 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Logan Center, Seminar Terrace 801

This symposium considers gardens from their colonial histories through to their present-day adoption by contemporary artists as a mode of artistic practice in the urban space. Turning the lens onto the different kinds of ecologies intersecting in artistic garden projects on the South Side of Chicago, we will consider the city garden today as a microcosm of broader environmental dynamics, where notions of resilience, and remediation resonate with global concerns of climate change. Speakers include Jessica Stockholder, Laura Letinsky, and Patrick Chamberlain. This event is part of the 2017–2018 Sawyer Seminar on Urban Art and Urban Form.
Presented by UChicago Urban and UChicago Arts.
