Art In The Moment

Artists across Chicago have been responding to the impact of the public health and political crises almost in real-time, creating work that both intervenes in and transforms our understanding of the events around us. Presented by Chicago Humanities Festival, this panel of contemporary artists talks with art historian Greg Foster-Rice about how their work is meeting this moment—and how it connects to artistic responses during previous periods of discord. Join Foster-Rice along with Chicago artists Bob Faust, Sadie Woods, and Edra Soto in a conversation about the role of art and the artist in times of crisis.
