Dis-placed By Conflict

intro pic is the subject of the next event in our Displacement Lecture Series. CHAT artist Theodore A. Harris will explore displacement through the lens of visual art and poetry. He will do so in conversation with Tyler School of Art Professor Jennifer Zarro, whose own research explores issues of race and identity in Philadelphia's historic and contemporary art community. They will talk about how the concept of dis-placement has shaped Harris’ art in general and the composition of his CHAT exhibit in particular. This conversation, which will encourage audience participation, provides a unique opportunity to engage directly with the ideas and concepts behind an artist’s creative process, and ask questions about the role of art in addressing how dis-placement affects our lives, whether it is anti-immigration policy, slavery, war, or white supremacy. Please join us this Wednesday afternoon at 4pm in CHAT. A reception will follow the event. For more details see here.
