January 9th-March 6th, 2014
Designed to engage professionals from various creative industries with the diverse arts and culture makers of Columbia, the Chicago Curates Columbia exhibition series presents its 4th edition with Engage/Connect. Engage/Connect brings Felicia Holman, co-founder of the Honey Pot Performance collective, to curate interdisciplinary works created by Columbia College Chicago students. Engage/Connect features works by students from Audio Arts and Acoustics, Photography, Art Education and Interdisciplinary Art departments.
Curated by: Felicia Holman
All In: Making Art and Community in Chicago: Tuesday, February 17, 4:30-6pm, Stage Two, adjacent to the exhibition.
In complement to the Engage/Connect exhibition, curator Felicia Holman moderates a 90-minute panel discussion with Chicago-based artists Krista Franklin, Carron Little and Baraka de Soleil and arts administrator Marie Casimir. The discussion will center on the value and means of collaboration/experimentation in an artist’s creative & entrepreneurial processes. Exploring the manifestations, impact & value of ephemeral social concepts (i.e. transactional v. relational interactions, distance v. proximity), this is the spine of the ‘Engage/Connect’ exhibition.
Video documentation of the panel discussion can be found here.
