Art Institute of

Auditorium, 111 South Michigan Avenue

Through her pointed and deftly edited
video installations, Candice Breitz looks at the stereotypes and
visual conventions found in films and popular culture. Breitz's videos
often explore the relationship between the god-like presence of pop
stars, actors and their awestruck fans, and examine the impact of
popular culture in a global context and the important role of spoken
language in relation to how we are perceived.

FREE Admission for this event.

Vladimir Us, artist and curator, will give a
presentation on the Moldova Young Artists Association
"Oberliht". Founded in 2000, The Moldova Young Artists
Association "Oberliht" is a non-profit youth organization
with the mission to support emerging artists through exhibitions,
projects, and various events as they enter into the local and
international contemporary art scene. Vladimir Us, founder of
"Oberliht" will discuss the cultural and political aspects
of finding alternative solutions in order to produce low and no-budget
art projects.

The presentation will include a 30 minute film
produced as part of the INTERVENTIONS3 project with a particular focus
on the current state of the public space today in Chisinau, the
capital city of the Republic of Moldova (former Soviet Republic).
Taken over by commercial and political power, the participants from
Moldova, Romania, Croatia, France, Germany, and Spain were invited to
encounter the local context by intervening in different public spaces.

Hybrid Realities Lecture Series

Columbus Drive Auditorium

280 South Columbus Drive

Piotr Dumala is an artist gifted with a remarkable
power of imagination and invention. He

is a director, screenplay writer, and author of
animated cartoons.  He chooses devious

ways, labor-consuming techniques and pictures with
many meanings. His films are

saturated with intensive poetic climate, subjected to
the principles of light-and-shade

effects, blown through and through by fear. Piotr
Dumala lives and works in Poland.

About the Hybrid
Realities Lecture Series

Hybrid Realities brings together artists using
classical or figurative imagery to negotiate contemporary reality.
Many of the participating artists are interested in hybridizing the
vast encyclopedia of available images, reworking influences from art
history, fairy tales, low art, and advertising culture, which combined
with technical virtuosity can result in a hybrid fiction, a
post-surrealist, neo-romantic, or futuristic space connected by the
urgency of narrative.

Founded in 1868,
the Visiting Artists Program (VAP) is one of the
oldest public programs of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Formalized in 1951 with the establishment of an endowed fund by Flora
Mayer Witkowsky, the Visiting Artists Program hosts public
presentations by artists, designers, and scholars each year in
lectures, symposia, performances, and screenings. It is a decidedly
eclectic program that showcases artists working in all media including
sound, video, performance, poetry, painting, and independent film, in
addition to significant curators, critics, and art historians.

The primary mission of the Visiting Artists Program is to educate and
foster a greater understanding and appreciation of contemporary art
through discourse. VAP maintains a long-standing commitment to ethnic
and gender diversity and has been at the forefront of the movement
toward a more socially engaged and theoretically informed aesthetic
