Nine Lives
Group exhibition curated by Karsten Lund and Caroline Picard
Renaissance Society, Chicago
Sep 12 - Nov 15, 2020

DISCUSSION: SAT, OCT 24, 2020, 3PM (US time zone)
Nine Lives participating artist Kapwani Kiwanga is joined by South African sculptor Bronwyn Katz, whose own work is simultaneously on display in the exhibition Upkeep at the Arts Club of Chicago. Their conversation, moderated by Romi Crawford, hinges on their shared engagements with sculpture, materials, storytelling, and revisited histories, as well as the intersecting themes of the two exhibitions in which they are participating.
