The Hyde Park Art Center and South Side Community Art Center jointly present this roundtable discussion featuring an intergenerational panel of artists who have exhibited at both institutions between the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Artists Faheem Majeed, Juarez Hawkins, Rhonda Wheatley, Candace Hunter, Tony Smith, Jonathan Green, and Julian Williams talk about working across the multiple spaces, audiences, and legacies of the two Southside art centers, moderated by collector Patric McCoy. Join them for storytelling, conversation, memories, anecdotes, and insights about working with these two 80-year-old institutions.

This program is presented in conjunction with the Hyde Park Art Center’s and South Side Community Art Center’s respective 2021 exhibitions featuring Faheem Majeed. In these shows, Majeed furthers his investigation of culturally specific institutions by focusing on the history and memory of the historic South Side Community Art Center.
