Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street, Cambridge

Using the poetic sermon, artist Theaster Gates will share a monologue on the creation of temporary and semi-permanent structures as a necessary part of his practice.

Whether it is the creation of intellectual property entities or joint ventures that allow shared ideation and ensure long-term commitments to a project, Gates will unpack the messy work associated with doing large city projects and administratively complicated works of “art.”

Following his talk, Gates will be in conversation with Sarah Lewis, assistant professor of history of art and architecture and African American studies at Harvard.
