Sculpting Politics, Debating Art: Tania Bruguera and Hamza Walker in Conversation.

24.10.2010. from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Fulton Recital Hall. Chicago, United States.
Organized by Chicago Humanities Festival.

This event brings together two leading figures from the international art world for a freewheeling discussion about the relationship between art and politics.

Tania Bruguera has earned international acclaim as one of the leading political artists of her generation; many of her performances and installations subtly reflect on the politics of her Cuban homeland as well as the nature of political power more generally. Her work has been exhibited in venues including the Venice Biennale, Documenta, and the Tate Modern. Hamza Walker is director of education and associate curator of The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago.
