Lawrence Weschler
THE GRAPHICS OF SOLIDARITY

Friday, October 27, 2006, 7:00 PM

Chicago Humanities Festival, Wilbur Wright College
4300 N. Narragansett Ave., Chicago, IL
Admission: $5 

The 17th Annual Chicago Humanities Festival this year takes on a theme that remains, alas, as daunting and urgent as ever - the interpenetrations of Peace and War. A huge topic rendered vaster by our insistence on exploring not only its present incarnation, but its history and future prospects.


Lawrence Weschler: The Graphics of Solidarity:


When Solidarity came surging into history in 1980, Poland's graphic artists had a remarkable set of long suppressed common symbols and memories on which to draw as they threw themselves into the struggle. A longtime chronicler of the Polish passion, Lawrence Weschler (artistic director of the CHF) offers a slide lecture surveying the history of the vivid artistic production that ensued.


Lawrence Weschler's participation is made possible through a significant gift from board member Marilynn Thoma and Carl Thoma. Presented in partnership with Wilbur Wright College.
