Join the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) for the first of three dialogues on how to build an anti-racist art ecosystem. This first event will focus on SAIC’s home: Chicago. We’ll convene a panel of some of the city’s art and design leaders to discuss the impact of segregation, bright spots in anti-racist work that can serve as guiding lights, and how we can work together to remove barriers to entry for those who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color.
The discussion will be moderated by Jina Valentine, SAIC’s associate professor of printmedia, and will feature the following panelists:
Rashawn Griffin, Practicing Artist and Visiting Professor, SAIC
Kavi Gupta, Owner and Director, Kavi Gupta Gallery
Tracie D. Hall, Executive Director, American Library Association
Jeffreen M. Hayes, Ph.D, Executive Director, ThreeWalls
Felicia Mings, SAIC Alum, Curator, Art Gallery of York University
Wednesday, April 28
12:00–1:45 p.m. CT
This event series is free and open to the public. A Zoom webinar link and password will be sent to all registrants prior to the event.
