Lecture by Christopher Baker May 6, 2014
Tuesday May 6, 2014. Doors open at 6 pm.
Chicago-based artist Christopher Baker will lecture on Tuesday, May 6, as part of our 2014 Spring Talks series. Christopher’s work became the cover and back cover of our Conflict issue (work shown above) and we are really happy to have him speak about his recent work.
Christopher Baker is an artist whose work engages the rich collection of social, technological and ideological networks present in the urban landscape. He creates artifacts and situations that reveal and generate relationships within and between these networks. Baker’s award-winning work has been featured extensively online, in print and internationally in festivals, galleries and museums. Since completing a Master of Fine Arts in Experimental and Media Arts at the University of Minnesota, Baker has held visiting artist positions at Kitchen Budapest, an experimental media lab in Hungary, and Minneapolis college of Art and Design. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Art and Technology Studies department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The event will be hosted by The Logan Share, a co-working space in Logan Square run by George and Sarah Aye from the Greater Good Studio. Housed in a former furniture warehouse, this building benefits from 3,500 sq ft of lofted workspace, with white washed floors and ceiling, 45′ of north facing windows and 14′ ceilings.
