Artist Theaster Gates will reflect on the last ten years of his art practice through the medium of his glass lantern slide collection. Gates' collection of 60,000 slides was given to him by the University of Chicago's art history department. Delving into this body of images, Theaster will lead a discussion on African art forms and notions of primitivism in modern art alongside his own research and making process.
