Thomas Hirschhorn and Theaster Gates in Conversation

A Mini-Symposium with Bill Brown, Yasmil Raymond, and W. J. T. Mitchell



On 28 October 2015, Critical Inquiry convened a mini-symposium on the topic of “Art and Public Life,” featuring the artists Thomas Hirschhorn and Theaster Gates.  This program was sponsored in part by the University of Chicago’s Neubauer Collegium, and was staged at Gates’s Arts Bank on Chicago’s South Side. A transcript of the conversation will be published by Critical Inquiry in due course.
