Exchange by Northern Trust: An Interactive Conversation Around the Art of Collecting

Panel Discussion at EXPO CHICAGO
FRONT International—An American City: Eleven Cultural Exercises

Jens Hoffman (Artistic Director) with Fred Bidwell (Collector and Founder)

Jens Hoffmann will engage in a discussion on the past, present, and future of the large-scale exhibition concept—what new can a biennial or triennial exhibition bring at a time when forces of nationalism and regionalism clash with the progressive, global traditions of the Venice biennale, Documenta, and others? Placing FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art within the context of this evolution, Hoffmann will preview their plans for the Summer of 2018. Reception to follow.
