KIRSTEN LEENAARS, NOT IN ANOTHER PLACE, BUT THIS PLACE… (HAPPINESS), 2013, VIDEO STILLS FROM 3-CHANNEL VIDEO

February 10 – April 26, 2014

Opening Reception: February 13, 5 – 8pm
College Art Association Conference: An Evening at Columbia College


RISK considers the interdependent role of empathy and risk in socially engaged art as practiced by Chicago contemporary artists. The exhibition focuses on artists who work in a public arena to foster connections between individuals and to activate communities. The work is divergent in medium, content and scope, but shares an interest in initiating and negotiating relationships through  personal interaction. Working with cultural partners and sites across the city, RISK highlights some of the most exciting projects emerging in this field and explores artists’ motivations and viewers’ expectations of social art practice

Curated by Amy M. Mooney and Neysa Page-Lieberman, with collaboration from Hyde Park Art Center6018North, and Rebuild Foundation.

Generously supported by a grant from The Joyce Foundation.
