When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 13 2019
"Acting Out" takes its prompt from artist Leigh Ledare's "The Task," a single channel film of a three-day Group Relations Conference—a social psychology method developed by London’s Tavistock Institute—that the artist organized in Chicago in 2017. Building upon this gripping portrait of current social dynamics & discontents, the exhibition also includes works by artists in the Marieluise Hessel Collection including Larry Clark, Lyle Ashton Harris, Nan Goldin, Boris Mikhailov, Lorraine O'Grady, Cindy Sherman, and Jo Spence; historical works that reverberate with themes raised by Ledare's film. The show is curated by Tom Eccles, Executive Director, and artist Leigh Ledere.
