Join Jen Delos Reyes for a performance and artist talk in collaboration with local musicians, students, faculty, and staff. Her lecture will be delivered throughout a set list of songs they will perform together that reference utopian leanings, relationship breakdowns, and leading a meaningful life. The songs will serve as anchor points to discuss her own socially engaged art practice, as well as content to contemplate collaborative impulses, and the potential artists have of imagining new ways of being in the world together.
Jen Delos Reyes is the director and founder of Open Engagement, an international annual conference on socially engaged art that has been active since 2007 and hosted conferences in two countries at locations including the Queens Museum in New York. She currently lives and works in Chicago, IL where she is the Associate Director of the School of Art and Art History at the University of Illinois Chicago.
Special thanks to Keohane Collateral Fund, Laura Ritchie, Scott Lindroth, Steve Toback, Trey Richardson and DethCadence!
