A multi-day summit taking place on the campus of the University of Chicago in Spring 2017, which asks What is an artistic practice of human rights -- conceptually, aesthetically, and pragmatically? Join a group of distinguished artists from around the world as they propose, interrogate and/or challenge how an object, image or performative intervention might open up a novel vision of human rights. Artists include: Lola Arias, Jelili Atiku, Tania Bruguera, Sandi Hilal and Alessandro Petti of Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency, Carlos Javier Ortiz, and Laurie Jo Reynolds.

Saturday, April 29, 9:30AM – 5PM
Artists Presentations: The artists will give 45-minute artistic presentations and performances about their artistic practice and how that practice illuminates human rights issues and advocates for political activism and legislative reform.

Monday, May 1, 6 – 9PM
Public Forum: The public is invited to participate in an open forum with the summit artists, including a Q&A and the opportunity for attendees to engage in dialogue with one another.
