Virtual Intersections: Authority
Authority impacts nearly every aspect of our lives. Whether it is our own authority, someone else’s, or the authority of an entity like an employer or the government (or an art museum), we are constantly navigating someone’s power. In this virtual Intersections, we will use artworks from the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and the Art Institute of Chicago to explore the many facets of authority, and train ourselves to confront authority in our own lives.
This participatory program is facilitated by J. Gibran Villalobos, assistant curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and Sam Ramos, associate director of Innovation and Creativity at the Art Institute.
