Mark Bradford and Julie Mehretu are internationally acclaimed artists who explore the natural and built environment, imagined spaces, and urban geography. Their artwork reveals the complex and overlapping systems that shape public spaces and the ways in which race and class impact the layout of our cities. Bradford and Mehretu are amongst the 29 MacArthur Fellows included in the multivenue exhibition Toward Common Cause: Art, Social Change, and the MacArthur Fellows Program at 40 organized by the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago, which uses the idea of “the commons” to explore the current sociopolitical moment. This conversation will be moderated by Romi Crawford, PhD, chair and professor in the Visual and Critical Studies department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
This program is presented in partnership with the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago, in conjunction with the multipartner, multivenue exhibition Toward Common Cause: Art, Social Change, and the MacArthur Fellows Program at 40.
This event is virtual, free, non-ticketed and open to the general public.
