What is an Artistic Practice of Human Rights?

A multi-day summit taking place at the University of Chicago on April 29 and May 1, 2017, which asks What is an artistic practice of human rights -- conceptually, aesthetically, and pragmatically? Join a group of distinguished artists from around the world as they propose, interrogate and/or challenge how an object, image or performative intervention might open up a novel vision of human rights. 

Artists include: Lola Arias / Jelili Atiku / Tania Bruguera / Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti of Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency / Zanele Muholi / Carlos Javier Ortiz / Laurie Jo Reynolds 

Co-presented by the Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry, the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights, and the Logan Center for the Arts.
