My City's Still Breathing, Co-Prosperity School,

Looking forward to participating in My City's Still Breathing, a symposium exploring the arts, artists and the city. November 2-7 in Winnipeg Manitoba. Winnipeg is the 2010 Canadian Cultural Capital, and is so pleased with having created and fully implemented a cultural plan that it is embarking on a new cultural plan for the next decade. I can't wait to learn more about it.

The Co-Prosperity School is an Artist-Run School for and about the advancement and understanding of contemporary Chicago Art. Through guest speakers and class member presentations we will shine a light on the contemporary art scene of Chicago. I'm "teaching" on November 1. Hopefully we'll all be learning alot via conversations and presentations. More here

And, AREA, Chicago's excellent grass-roots exploratory publication, has released its 10th anniversary issue, institutions and infrastructures, with many compelling essays and investigations relating to Chicago and beyond, including a brief piece by yours truly.
