UIC MFA alumn Daniel Tucker ('13) is moderating the Guggenheim event, Come Together, on April 8th.
From the website:
Guggenheim Forum is a continuing series of moderated online discussions catalyzing intelligent conversation on the arts, architecture, and design. Several times each year, experts from a variety of fields inquire into and debate topics related to the museum’s exhibition program.
Live Chat: Thursday, April 10, 2 pm EDT
This edition of the Guggenheim Forum explores historical and contemporary definitions and manifestations of community, and investigates the creation of utopian and other experimental models in the physical, cultural, intellectual, and digital realms. What constitutes community and what new creative ways of organizing ourselves as groups have arisen? How has the Internet reshaped existing communities and generated new ones? And what roles do exclusivity and withdrawal play in communities that are normally characterized by participation and collaboration?
Panelists include Lauren Groff, author of Arcadia; Pablo Helguera, Director of Adult and Academic Programs at the Museum of Modern Art; and Stevphen Shukaitis, author of Imaginal Machines: Autonomy & Self-Organization in the Revolutions of Everyday Life. Our moderator and Live Chat host is Chicago-based writer, artist, and organizer Daniel Tucker.
