Peter Schjeldahl

Peter Schjeldahl will come to speak to us about “Chicago-ization and Other Discontents”. The talk will be a further development of a challenging and controversial article which the author published several years ago. In it, he traced how Chicago ideas and images were having their effects on artists in other parts of the country. In the current talk, he will carry the idea a few steps further. It gives promise of offering us high-level commentary on all of our favorite notions and conceits about Chicago art and the rest of the country. Poet and critic, Peter Schjeldahl has written for a wide variety of publications – from the Sunday New York Times to Vanity Fair, from The Village Voice to Art in America. In 1981, he won the Frank Jewett Mather Award for excellence of his criticism.
