The New School’s Vera List Center for Art and Politics and the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC) at Parsons The New School for Design present Theaster Gates: A Way of Working. Curated in collaboration with Theaster Gates, recipient of the inaugural Vera List Center Prize for Art and Politics, the two-day forum and gallery presentation are the culmination of The New School’s 18-month engagement with the artist and his work. Theaster Gates: A Way of Working offers a view into how the artist develops synergies within his far-reaching work, and examines the complex ways of creating and maintaining an expanded studio practice rooted in institutional engagement, object making, and the production of space. Gates is globally renowned for his genre-defying explorations of community, history, race, and politics.
