Day & Time
Free, but registration required.

Exhibiting artist Hana Miletić will be joined by art historian E.C. Feiss in a discussion to explore the evolution and complexities at play in the works on view in Hana Miletić: Soft Services.

Moderated by Assistant Curator Selby Nimrod, this public discussion will situate Miletić’s artistic practice with particular attention to the role photography plays in the creation of her textile works. The conversation will also address the new works Miletić produced for the List Center show, considering the artist’s process and materials as well as the her interest in minor categories of labor and the idea of social reproduction. We encourage attendees to arrive early to view the exhibition prior to the discussion.
