3-D Doings Symposium

October 25-26, 2018

This two-day event brings together many of the artists exhibiting in 3-D Doings: The Imagist Object in Chicago Art, 1964-1980, the first in-depth exploration of the overall affinity of Imagist artists for objects. Through a dialogue, a gallery talk, and a panel discussion, the artists engage in conversation with one another and with audience members to create oral histories about their work and Chicago in the 1960s and ’70s. Transcripts from the symposium form part of the forthcoming exhibition catalogue.

The 3-D Doings Symposium, October 25-26, is funded by the generous support of The Alfred Z. Solomon Residency, which brings notable scholars, artists, and critics to Skidmore to address a wide range of issues in the visual arts.

Dunkerley Dialogues are made possible by a generous gift from Michele Dunkerley ’80.

The 3-D Doings: The Imagist Object in Chicago Art, 1964-1980 exhibition and subsequent catalogue are funded in part by The Andy Warhol Foundation, and the Terra Foundation for American Art, as part of Art Design Chicago.

Art Design Chicago is a wide-ranging initiative to explore the breadth of Chicago’s role as a catalyst and incubator for innovations in art and design. Spearheaded and funded by the Terra Foundation, with significant support from The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, Art Design Chicago was developed in partnership with more than 40 cultural organizations to celebrate Chicago’s artists, designers, and creative producers. Art Design Chicago will feature more than 25 exhibitions and hundreds of public programs, presented throughout 2018, as well as the creation of several scholarly publications and a four-part documentary.
