Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in United States
The Art World is Flat: Globalism--Crisis and Opportunity

The Art World is Flat: Globalism--Crisis and Opportunity
CHICAGO  •  Pritzker Pavilion, Millennium Park  •  Ongoing

Symposium C6 will explore how the forces of globalism are challenging traditional cultural hierarchies, redistributing capital, creating powerful collaborations, and generating new hybrid cultural practices. It will feature keynotes, presentations, panel discussions, and performances by an international group of innovative and socially engaged artists, entrepreneurs, technologists, writers, designers, curators, patrons, and collectors.

Conference highlights include a keynote by Peter Sellars, world-renowned theatre director and professor of World Arts and Culture at U.C.L.A., a private screening of Lynn Hershman Leesonís new film Strange Culture, and a very special closing performance by award-winning playwright, actress and MacArthur Foundation fellow Anna Deavere Smith.
