Open Practice Committee

welcome
156. Emilio Rojas, “Burden or Blessing; Waiting for Some Heavy Weight to Think Clearly”

The Open Practice Committee in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago explores the means, atmospheres, and attitudes that make art contemporary. By inviting artists, critics, and curators of contemporary art to address our community, the OPC 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 OPC aims to advance our collective understanding of theory and practice within the visual arts.
