Chicago's art history reflects, in many ways, the character of its neighborhoods. Artists, collectors, and exhibiting institutions lived and worked together in various parts of the city. Over time Hyde Park-Kenwood hosted a vigorous art community. This lecture will tell some of that story.
Born and trained in China, contemporary Chinese artists ShanZuo and DaHuang Zhou have been working in the United States since 1986. Based in the Bridgeport neighborhood of Chicago, the Zhou Brothers have become nationally and internationally known for their work and their community engagement. Join them as they discuss the impact and influence that immigrant artists bring to the Chicago arts scene, while also sharing how living and working in Chicago has influenced their own work and practice.
