Join us for an authentic Pow Wow as the kick-off event for the year-long project and future exhibition Close Encounters. This project explores social/cultural gatherings and their venues with the objective of encouraging new forms of engagement between artists, art institutions and communities. Participating artists include Daniel du Bern (New Zealand), Tania Bruguera (US), Walker Hood (US), Maddie Leach (NZ), Truman Lowe (US), Inigo Manglano-Ovalle (US), Lisa Reihana (NZ), and Wayne Youle (NZ). The Art Center is partnering with the Field Museum and the American Indian Center of Chicago to produce this project.
Support for this project has been provided by the Illinois Arts Council and Creative New Zealand.
