The Department of Visual Arts invites visiting artists through the Open Practice Committee, in conversation with DoVA fculty and students. 

The Open Practice Committee in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago explores the atmospheres and attitudes that make art contemporary. The Open Practice Committee’s programming fosters a genuinely experimental, yet conceptually rigorous environmental space in which strategies of production and description are challenged and renewed. From the conventional departmental presentation to the unconventional institutional event, the Open Practice Committee aims to advance our collective understanding of theory and practice within the visual arts.
