About the Event

Shiva Dances with the Art Institute of ChicagoDirected by Adrian Piper(Germany, 2004, 103 mins.)

Thursday, February 2 | 7:00 PM

Structured by a Fall 2003 lecture at the Art Institute of Chicago that transformed into a spontaneous and moving group performance, Piper situates her film Funk Lessons first in the evolving tradition of recent mainstream films that highlight the teaching of popular dance as a medium of self-transcendence and cross-cultural contact; and second within the broader philosophical context of The Color Wheel Series, which this video completes. Visual Arts Professors Bruce Hainley and Lisa Lapinski will introduce.

Discounted parking at Founder’s Court. $5 flat rate, credit card required.
