A Conversation with Artist David Hartt about his Project “in the forest” EXPOCHGO201 7 BY FRANCES DORENBAUM Into the Woods David Hartt is an artist formerly from Chicago and currently based in Philadelphia. His work combines photography, film and architectural installations to explore social, political and economic histories. Hartt, who will be sharing in this year’s EXPO /Dialogues,spoke with Newcity about his most recent project, “in the forest,” a film exploring the remnants of the failed Habitat Puerto Rico project designed by Moshe Safdie in the late 1960s in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This work will feature in his exhibition at the Graham Foundation in partnership with the Chicago Architecture Biennial. 3

A Conversation with Artist Derrick Adams BY LEE ANN NORMAN Reinventing the Image of Black Creativity Although Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist Derrick Adams is known for creating images and experiences that draw heavily from popular culture, the themes he explores aren’t simply about being “hip.” In “Future People,” on view at the Stony Island Arts Bank through September 18, Adams continues to explore representations of black Americans on television and in the media, but was able to incorporate hidden histories embedded in the Arts Bank’s eclectic archives. In preparation for the exhibition, Adams drew on historical achievements in science, technology and design to tell little-known American stories, an approach that will feature highly in his work during the coming year. This fall, Adams’ work will be in the group exhibition “Lines of Influence” at the Savannah College of Art and Design, which celebrates Jacob Lawrence’s centennial and his influence on generations of artists, and an exhibition based on the “Negro Motorist Green Book” at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City. Adams, a National YoungArts Foundation Visual Arts alum and master teacher, will speak at EXPO on the importance of mentorship for young emerging artists as they navigate critical junctures in their careers. Newcity recently spoke with Adams to learn a bit more about his interest in blending pop culture and hidden histories.

I want to create a language forimages that is both empowering and critical butalso entertaining.I think a lot about how we can reclaim art prac-tice for ourselves, from its intimidating realm.That’s very important for me. I want to con-nect as much as I can with the audience that’sinspiring my work. I think about how the formalelements of art connect with a viewer. WhenI’m designing exhibitions, I think about thenon-artist—what would they want to see? I’mtrained to look at art and understand its signsand symbols in a certain way. I want to knowhow to draw people in who do not have thattrained eye.This idea of redefining images and ways oflooking to make connections between formalelements in art and the everyday also comesup a lot through an emphasis on gatheringpeople, community, and even joy in your work.I wouldn’t necessarily call it joy, but there iscertainly a level of optimism that I want toemphasize. I’m excited that there are so manydifferent conversations happening in contem-porary art [about black culture], but there isstill room to highlight what African Americansthemselves want to see. It’s important to not onlythink about how you are projected upon, butalso think about how you want to see yourself.Artists can play a huge role in that. I rememberthe art-history professor my freshman yeartalking about how stained-glass windows weredesigned to influence their relationship withGod. Some of the people were illiterate, so theimages were really important to helping themunderstand life and their faith. Those imageswere aspirational in a lot of ways. People wantedto connect to them. I want to create images thatpeople aspire to connect with. Making work thatemphasizes struggles and oppressive systemsis necessary, but I believe we need stories thatshow how we have risen above the challenges. Iwant a person who walks into my exhibitions tohave a different perspective of themselves, so atthe Stony Island Arts Bank, I want them to thinkabout black creativity and invention differently,and when people look at my “Floaters” series,I want them to have a different perspective onleisure… and I want to see it too.

A Conversation with Naomi Beckwith and Romi Crawford BY B. DAVID ZARLEY Instagram, Blogs and Selfie Sticks as New Tools for Conversations About Art Contemporary art can be thought of as two interrelated components: the visual and material aspects of the artwork, and the ideas, concepts and context from which these aesthetics spring. The internet and social media have flattened the world, allowing viewers from across the globe—and from all the neighborhoods around a museum or gallery—unparalleled exposure to art. The question now is, how does one navigate an art world that can be traversed in an instant? Naomi Beckwith, curator at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and Romi Crawford, associate professor of Visual and Critical Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, talked with us about how technology can shape both the images and ideas around art, and the challenges and opportunities that future curators and critical thinkers will face with these new platforms. Both will be participants in /Dialogues panels during EXPO CHICAGO including one together on September 14.EXPOCHGO201 7 Thanks to the internet, art circu- lates all around the world at every Installation view, “Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats its Own Leg,” MCA Chicago, June 6 – September 24, 2017. moment. When you’re curating a show, do you feel a pressure or10 / Photo: Nathan Keay, © MCA Chicago. an excitement to be able to reach that huge audience and make sure that the people who live in your community will also enjoy it? Naomi Beckwith: I wouldn’t call it pressure; I think if anything, a responsible curatorial practice is always thinking about an audience that’s beyond the people who walk in your door. In fact, this idea of reaching out to a broader audience is the very reason why the exhibition catalog was invented. Everyone understands that any show that you do will only be seen by a handful of folks, even if it’s a blockbuster show. The potential audience is always much, much bigger than the physical audience. And so I think the concern curato- rially has always been, how do you present the show in a way that feels complete, even if someone’s not in the space? The first step for that, historically, has been the exhibition

A Conversation with Naomi Beckwith and Romi Crawford catalog, but of course new tools are available to us now. Exhibition catalogs are often not cheap; often they are harder to obtain than just going on Instagram and seeing what visitors to a show have posted. Can you speak to how these inter- net platforms have even further democratized the process of seeing art? NB: I like to make a distinction between viewing a work of art in person and seeing an image of it online. Those are entirely different things. Now, that doesn’t mean, of course, that you can’t have a meaningful experience from a mediated image when you’re not in front of the work. Websites and social media have allowed people to see an object in a way that they would have never been able to lay eyes on. But I think it’s important to keep that distinction there. Now, at the same time, I do feel as though that you need to also make sure that ideas are represented in this kind of digital or multimedia-based platform. And so where the exhibition catalog is inaccessible sometimes in terms of price or availability, for some people it’s also inaccessible in terms of the ideas that are discussed, because an exhibition catalog tends to be fairly academic. “Support Black Liberation, Wall of Respect” / Photo: Roy Lewis The question is, how do you think about multiple levels of audiences?

IN/SITU CHRONOPOLITICS CURATED BY FLORENCE DERIEUX Installed within the vast vaulted architecture of Navy Pier, the IN/SITU program provides exhibiting galleries the opportunity to showcase large-scale installations and site-specific works by leading international artists represented by 2017 Exhibitors. PARTICIPATING ARTISTS SANFORD BIGGERS DAN PETERMAN On April 22, 1922, a heated debate took place at the French Society moniquemeloche, Chicago Rhona Hoffman Gallery, of Philosophy in Paris between the philosopher Henri Bergson and Chicago physicist Albert Einstein about the nature of time. Famously, the latter TOM BURR put forward the two ways that time could solely be understood—phys- Bortolami, New York LARA SCHNITGER ically and psychologically—and contradicted Bergson’s thesis on the Anton Kern Gallery, New York possibility of a third dimension, of experiencing time philosophically. ALEX CHITTY This quarrel marked a rupture, embodying an important moment of PATRON, Chicago HIROSHI SENJU transformation between the conception and notion of time. Since this Sundaram Tagore Gallery, moment, the perception of time has been the subject of ideological BETHANY COLLINS New York, Singapore, discourse. However, it is space rather than time that is most often PATRON, Chicago Hong Kong associated with the term ‘politics.’ NATE LOWMAN TROIKA While the mention of geopolitics has largely dominated in the Maccarone, New York, (CONNY FREYER, EVA realm public debate, the term chronopolitics, or the politics of a Los Angeles RUCKI, SEBASTIEN NOEL) time, remains a marginal and rarely used expression. Its potentials Anne Mosseri-Marlio Galerie, refer to the role played by time within our societies—viewed instead LAVAR MUNROE Basel through the lens of social change. Art is an essential factor of this Jenkins Johnson Gallery, change. Politics, which is often described as an “art of the necessary,” San Francisco, New York WANG DU is a matter of time. Galerie Laurent Godin, Paris MANISH NAI As with Foucault, who outlined the many possibilities offered by Kavi Gupta, Chicago art to construct other times—not only to question history, but also to invent different futures—the artists featured in Chronopolitics share an approach to the role and impact of its measure on our contempo- rary social, political, and cultural structures. Using a wide range of mediums—from painting, sculpture, installation, and textile works, to performance—the 2017 IN/SITU program explores the idea of time in various ways. Evoking terms such as immediacy, instantaneity, simultaneity, ubiquity, imminence, permanence, impermanence, chance, probability, memory, remembrance, these artists’ works question the temporal conditions, or episodes, that disturb our traditionally linear understanding of time and progress. In doing so, they allow us to experiment, evaluate, imagine, and reimagine our own relation to the real. —Florence DerieuxEXPOCHGO201 7 Installation view, Sanford Biggers: Subjective Cosmology, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, 2016.

Programming EXPO VIDEO THESE RESTLESS TIMES CURATED BY ALI SUBOTNICK EXPO VIDEO highlights a selection of dynamic and cutting-edge film, video, and new media works by artists selected from 2017 Exhibitors.PARTICIPATING ARTISTSSTANYA KAHN Instability. Unease. Fear. Dismay. Angst. Anxiety. Anger. Malaise.

Mixing these universal feelings with personal biography, artists Stanya Kahn and Erik van Lieshout create deeply relevantArms are Overrated (2012) and provocative works that are both of our time, and timeless. Both artistsDon’t Go Back to Sleep (2014) achieve a delicate balance between the personal and political, public andStand in the Stream (2011–2017) private, drama and comedy by asking questions, eliciting contemplation, and potentially instilling hope or some sort of empathy in viewers.

These unstable and shifting politicalEgo (2013) situations recur over and over in our current climate—seeing them reflectedBasement (2014) through a personal lens provides fresh insight, and yet connects to the historyDie Insel (2016) of this endlessly repeating cycle of chaos, change, upheaval, and rebellion. Making art is a form of protest, a political act, and without heavy-handedGUTHRIE LONERGAN didactics or proselytizing, both Kahn and van Lieshout effectively engageHonor Fraser, Los Angeles viewers in their own activism. Kahn’s video Don’t Go Back to Sleep (2014) pres- ents an apocalyptic scenario with a group of strangers all outfitted in uniform9 Short Music Videos (2005) hospital scrubs as they go into survival mode, inhabiting an empty house in a world destroyed by mysterious outside forces. Her most recent piece, Stand in the Stream (2011–2017) follows the artist coping with her mother’s deteriora- tion as she slips into dementia, while also reflecting on recent riots and politi- cal protests, as well as individuals making personal connections in cyberspace. These deeply stirring films document the recent shifts in society and how we communicate and relate to one another, both at home and in the world at large. Kahn’s shorter, and more lighthearted pieces, such as Arms are Over- rated (2012), follows the musings of characters (made of crumpled up paper) reminiscent of the loveable, cranky balcony Muppets, Statler and Waldorf. In van Lieshout’s video, Ego (2013) the artist delves into his complicated relationship with his immediate family. Like Kahn, he uses his personal history to explore societal issues and human relations.

For his recent film Die Insel (2016), van Lieshout focuses on a lake that has been recently gentrified and transformed into anatural wilderness and recreation facility, surrounded by neo-modernist villas for the nouveau riche. In classic van Lieshout style, thevideo documents his irreverent confrontations with increasingly annoyed civil servants as he asks questions to expose the complications EXPOCHGO201 7of the situation. Exploiting the humor and absurdity of contemporary life, politics, culture, and the role of the artist, both Kahn and vanLieshout excel at creating achingly honest, witty works that speak to existential questions and the human condition. Punctuating the video program, Guthrie Lonergan’s 9 Short Music Videos (2005) reflects our increasing reliance on digital technologyto dictate our lives and routines. Using the default sounds such as ring tones and email alerts, Lonergan creates music videos to accom-pany the noises that have infiltrated our lives and become as familiar as a doorbell or car horn.—Ali Subotnick 23

It was a genuinely altruistic gift,EXPOCHGO201 7 Media Sponsors serving as a special thank you for Northern Trust’s support of Plus de 3cm the acclaimed artists’ return to their home country of China Moins de 3cm through a special exhibition. Art is a gift to us all, and not a day goes by that we don’t stop and marvel at the beauty of this work and the sentiment behind it. We proudly showcase Chicago in our Global Conference Center, and it remains a focal point in our corporate art collection. But imagine the complexities of accepting a gift such as this one. As a corporation, there were business-related and compliance discussions and emotional elements to address in advance of selecting that perfect spot to display it. Clients often come to us to discuss gifting their art or other collectibles. Gifting is a delicate process, fraught with intricacies, whether financial, emotional or logistical in nature. When clients ask us about gifting, it’s easy to see it from the perspective of the donor. It’s a feel-good moment, and we understand how important it is for them to pass their love of art and that special piece on to someone in a meaningful way. What’s often forgotten, however, is the beneficiary’s reaction. Many recipients are overwhelmed with the responsibilities, and many simply do not want it altogether. Taking time to talk to your beneficiaries about the treasured items you plan to share with them is of critical importance, and formalizing those plans with an advisor helps take the guesswork out of gifting and allows you to focus on the emotional benefits of giving the gift of art. Perhaps as you enjoy EXPO CHICAGO with friends and family, and maybe even your advisors, you’ll find a natural opportunity to discuss plans for your own collections, including that new piece you plan on adding this weekend.
