yesladypheonix Inspired change || While in #Chicago I had the opportunity to go by the home of artist/activist #TheasterGates and learn more about his life and work || || it's worth revisiting the story of David and Goliath #MalcolmGladwell = Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling "Giants" || || Gates has shown his work and performances internationally. According to Gates, his most celebrated project is the #Dorchester Projects on the South Side of Chicago. With the Dorchester Projects he restored dilapidated buildings and turned them into #culturalInstitutions with artifacts from the South Side. || || He's currently designing a million-dollar installation for the South Side's Ninety-Fifth Street subway terminal. >>>> It's the largest public art project in the #history of the Chicago Transit Authority. He was part of the 2010 Whitney Biennial in New York, the Milwaukee Art Museum in 2010, the 2010 Art Chicago fair. Since 2011, he has been the director of Arts and Public Life at the University of Chicago. In fall 2013, when ArtReview published its list of the hundred most powerful people in the art world, Gates ranked fortieth. #MTPtrain || #inspiredChange || #CollectiveLegacy 1w
