Tonight the Visiting Artist Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago will be hosting a lecture by Colombia-based artist Doris Salcedo. I know where I am going to be tonight!
Monday, March 15, 6:00 p.m.
SAIC Columbus Auditorium, 280 S. Columbus Dr.
Colombia-based artist Doris Salcedo explores the significance of everyday objects and their power to implicate history. Her sculptures and installations infuse domestic materials with gestures of political and psychological archeology, and their sense of absence hovers in the space between the empowered and voiceless. Salcedo’s work has appeared in major exhibitions at Tate Modern, London; Castello de Rivoli, Turin; and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, among others. She has participated in the T1 Triennial of Contemporary Art, Turin; Documenta; 8th International Istanbul Biennial; and the Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art. This lecture is co-presented by the William Bronson and Grayce Slovet Mitchell Lectureship in Fiber and Material Studies at SAIC and is part of the Common Languages lecture series.
$5 per person for the general public; $3 per person for SAIC alumni, non-SAIC students, and seniors; and FREE for students, faculty, and staff of the Art Institute of Chicago.
