Working the Public is a dynamic conversation with Theaster Gates, one of the most important public artists of our time. As the founder of the Rebuild Foundation, a non-profit platform for cultural development and neighborhood transformation, Gates is redefining the way we think about visual art and its potential to change the world. Gates’s artistic practice spans media, including ceramics, installations, and performance; political interventions; and the founding of organizations. He will participate in a conversation with Naima J. Keith, the deputy director of exhibitions and programs at the California African American Museum (CAAM).
Presented by USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative. Organized by Amelia Jones, Karen Koblitz, and the USC Roski School of Art and Design. Co-sponsored by the California African American Museum.
