Virtual Artist Talk: Joseph Lefthand

Thursday, Jul 22, 2021 6 – 7 pm

688 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Chicago, IL 60642

Join us for a virtual artist talk by Chicago-based movement artist and cultural advocate Joseph Lefthand on July 22, 6 – 7pm.

Joseph will speak about his practice and conception of Experimental Makers Workshop, which is currently in progress at the gallery. He and his collaborators, artists Isaac Couchand Sarah Whyte, are exploring the relationship between personhood and institutional violence, utilizing elements of performance and design to conceive wearable art that re-imagines the human form as transitory, lucid, ethereal, and disruptive.

Descended from the Cheyenne-Arapaho, Taos, and Zuni tribes, Joseph works at the intersection of art and social practice, exploring the role of embodied movement, "performance-as-theory," and communal inquiry as sustainable modes of discourse in confronting institutional and state violence.
