Founding editor of the New Arts Examiner Derek Guthrie, Bridge Art Fair founder and director Michael Workman, famed political consultant Don Rose and artist David Gista (bio) will be featured at a thought provoking discussion on whether or not â€œChicago Art: Is it Dead or Alive?â€ at the international art gallery and policy salon, Th!nkArt. Th!nkArt director, Laurie R. Glenn will moderate the panel.
This much anticipated dialogue will be held during a holiday reception for emerging Parisâ€“based Artist Florent Mouttiâ€™s exhibition entitled Faces: A Question of Identity, The Changing Face of France. Moutti has created a series of portraits painted on canvasses made of traditional French cloth, juxtaposed with multi-ethnic and multi-racial faces. The exhibition reflects the changing landscape and â€œfaceâ€ of France today, and also raises the question around national identity for all of us.
