The Hood’s second major reopening event celebrates twelve artists whose work is featured in the galleries. The artists will speak about their own work and join a panel discussion on one of four broad themes: Global Contemporary Art, New Photographies, Art and Social Justice, and Painting Now. Participants include Morehshin Allahyari, Bahar Behbahani, Markus Brunetti, Lalla Essaydi, Jeffrey Gibson, Sin-ying Ho, Doug Rickard, Cara Romero, Alison Saar, Pat Steir, Hulleah Tsinhnahjinnie, and Obiora Udechukwu. The symposium will conclude with an open house in the galleries for a chance to meet the artists, and a reception in the atrium. For details, see pages 4–8 of the Hood Spring Quarterly.
