Workshop: On Curating.


Convened by Felicia Mings of the Art Institue of Chicago, the workshop showcases various approaches to integration, and looks at the social fabric that makes up arts and culture institutions in Chicago and beyond. 

How do institutions approach serving the communities in which they are embedded? What is their perceived social responsibility, and which models of curating are pertinent to the articulation of those roles and responsibilities? A series of conversations and presentations wander after these queries.
