    "In, around and under some contemporary exhibitions"
    Hamza Walker, Director of Education and Associate Curator, The Renaissance Society, University of Chicago
    At the heart of organizing exhibitions are questions about the nature of the arts experience.  Some are pragmatic while others are philosophical. Walker is excited by questions such as: Can the present be made legible through the work of art?  What kind of information is art? When is art a means to an end versus an end itself? Walker has worked on a panoply of exhibitions. Using a selection of these as case studies, he will share the situations from which such questions emerge.
