Downtown Dialogue

Collectives at Work
Thursday, February 12, 2004; 7–9pm

One Wall Street Court, 142 Pearl Street, 2nd Floor

Collectives at Work explores questions that surround
temporary projects created by artistic collectives and how the concept of artistic fertilization continues within the work of partnering institutions or communities. Concurrent with LMCC’s In the Face of Others exhibition organized by NURTUREart, panelists will examine the impact of their itinerant projects on the community; the long-term contributions to institutions, spaces, and the field beyond temporary interventions; and the advantages and disadvantages of non-profit models that utilize collective organizational structures.

Panelists include Ayreen Anastas, 16 Beaver Group; Patrick Meagher, NURTUREart; Prerana Reddy, South Asian Women's Creative Collective ; and Greg Sholette, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago & Public Edge. The discussion will be moderated by LMCC staff; Erin Donnelly, Associate Director of Programs and Narisara Vanichanan, Associate Director of Community Arts and Planning.
