FRIENDSHIP DAY Collection at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business October 23
FRIENDSHIP DAY: Members can bring a friend new to Art Encounter for free to today’s program
A great surprise to most of Chicago’s art lovers is that one of the best collections of contemporary art is not in a museum but in the University of Chicago’s business school’s elegant Harper Center. Selected by five people including prominent curators, the works were not intended for decoration but to stimulate thought and creativity. The works, dominated by international artists, includes paintings, photography, mixed media and sculpture that often raise questions about intellectual and visual perceptions and beliefs. A number of artists are represented by several artworks. We’ll see works by Wolfgang Tillmans, Thomas Schutte, Ori Gersht, Tacita Dean, Mark Grotjahn and Judy Ledgerwood.
