The Practice Sessions

Chicago Art Department, 1932 S. Halsted #100

What does collaboration look like?

How do artists, educators, organizations, and communities conceptualize, think about content, and work together to create artwork, curriculum, and performance? What are the dialogues that propel this collaborative process?

This exhibition shows elements of the artistic process of collaboration. Documentation of conversations, drafts, ideas formed and unformed, and sketches will all contribute to this ongoing dialogue.

There are two more events connected to the show at the  Chicago Art Department, 1932 S. Halsted #100. Food will be provided at both events so please RSVP to if you are coming.

Tuesday night, May 12 at 6 pm artist and educator Maritza Mosquera will be giving a talk on workshops she did with dancer/choregrapher Kyle Abraham, the Alabama Dance Council and other organizations and artists for the Alabama Dance Festival. In January of 2015 Maritza was brought in as the festivals’ scholar in residence for its 2015 season festival which celebrated the 150+ years of the declaration of the Emancipation Proclamation and the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery Civil Rights March.

Saturday, May 16, from noon to 1pm, we will be hosting a lunch with artists from the Practice Sessions exhibit, residents of the Chicago Art Department and others for the closing of the show.
