Over the last year, UICA has continued an evolution to reshape the landscape of our art community. Personally, I am beyond thrilled to see the intentionality here to be ever more inclusive — a trait that I believe has been a part of the UICA experience since I first walked through their doors on Race Street in 1986.
Currently on display is the work of Larry Cook: On The Scene
, which, according to his description, “examines the formal, social, and cultural aspects of this photographic practice, including photographs of subjects posing in front of backdrops that focus on elements of performance, expression, and spectacle.”
On Saturday afternoon, those who pre-register may attend a special artist talk with Larry Cook, who will be sharing his insights on status, individualism, and materialism within Black culture.
So while this show, “Larry Cook: On The Scene,” is on exhibit until January 26, 2020, you only have this one chance to hear his insights live and in-person about his insightful and dialogue-inducing works.
