Territories of Encounter: The Art Therapy Assemblage

 

The LeRoy Neiman Center, 37 S. Wabash Ave.
Sunday, March 24, 9:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.

A symposium on interdisciplinary, community-based arts practices

Pamela Whitaker works with communities of children and adults to create indoor and outdoor environments, which offer opportunities for engagement. These environments can be thought of as shelters, habitats, art studios, or scenes for events. Her ideas regarding re-shaping space, and assembling new territories for both retreat and encounter, are inspired by installation art, land art, guerrilla art, and performance art. She will talk about how the ideas of philosopher Gilles Deleuze and psychiatrist Felix Guattari have become integrated into her approach to art therapy on a community level.
