About This Show
How much can we control the way that others see us and the way that we see others? How do we show the world who we think we are? Join us for a conversation with Karen Finley and Young Jean Lee, two experimental artists whose works question our ideas of identity by probing issues of race, gender and privilege. In an intimate conversation at Steppenwolf’s 1700 Theatre, Finley and Lee will discuss past and present work in a wide-ranging discussion that will touch on how artists and others engage with themes like censorship, provocation, and appropriation. We hope you’ll join us for this timely conversation about how artists and others perform identity.
This conversation will be moderated by Lisa Lee, Director of UIC School of Art + Art History.
Young Jean Lee and Karen Finley both have shows currently running at Steppenwolf Theatre: Lee’s Straight White Men runs February 2-March 19. Finley will be performing two different pieces through Steppenwolf's LookOut Series on Feb 10, 11, 17 & 18.
