At Home with the Artist: A Legacy of Domesticity through House Museums

Event Date: October 15
Time: 6:00 p.m.

Learn about four unique and geographically diverse artists, all of whom have ties to Chicago, through the lens of their home lives. How did Henry Moore’s Perry Green studios and gardens in rural Hertfordshire inspire his bronze sculptures? What about Roger Brown’s collection of art and objects in his storefront home/studio spoke to his visual and associative practice? How did Albin Polasek overcome his paralysis later in life to continue artmaking in his Florida home? Which key personalities in 20th century art frequented Roland Penrose’s East Sussex farmhouse? Curators Hannah Higham, Lisa Stone, Rachel Frisby, and Ami Bouhassane come together to explore these questions and more in a conversation moderated by Valerie Balint of the Historic Artists’ Homes & Studios Consortium.

 

Free and open to the public thanks to a generous grant from The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.

 

Reception 6:00 p.m. | Program 6:30 p.m.

Renee Baker: The Baldwin Chronicles

Event Date: July 11
Time: 6:00 p.m.

Wednesday July 11
Renee Baker presents The Baldwin Chronicles: Negro Ideologies

Wine Reception & Dinner Buffet accompanied by film 6:00 pm | Concert 7:00 pm

A renaissance woman in the truest sense, Renee Baker (composer, violist, poet, artist, filmmaker and current CSO visiting artist) brings us The Baldwin Chronicles: Negro Ideologies, a multimedia musical work of operatic proportions based on texts by James Baldwin. Just as relevant now as he was in the mid-twentieth century, Baldwin painted a nuanced portrait of Black life in America. An artistic rumination on the conversation Baldwin’s texts and speeches brought about, The Baldwin Chronicles is performed by 20 instrumentalists and singers from the Chicago Modern Orchestra Project (CMOP) and the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM).

Preceding the performance (6pm), watch an art film produced by Baker while you eat. The performance begins at 7pm, and it promises to be truly epic.

Purchase tickets here.
$65 per person
