AICAD 2018 Symposium: Artists/Designers/Citizens

Wednesday, November 07Friday, November 09
The Art Institute of Chicago
School/Museum Campus
United States

Hosted by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), the 2018 Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD) Symposium, Artists/Designers/Citizens, explores how the practice and study of art and design can offer ways of seeing, intervening, and belonging as a citizen. As citizens have come together to democratically organize, protest, and stand up for one another around the world, Artists/Designers/Citizens seeks to define values, share strategies, and set goals for citizen artists who acknowledge that the work they do in the studio, classroom, and beyond can innovate new ways of being and show humanity the way forward. The symposium, which takes place November 7–9, 2018, in Chicago, will also serve as the North American component of Dimensions of Citizenship, an exhibition commissioned by SAIC and the University of Chicago for the US Pavilion at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.
