Chicago Collections Consortium is proud to host Call and Response: Lawrence Steger's Archives and Lasting Legacy. In partnership with UIC Gallery 400, this program furthers the discussion about performance artist Lawrence Steger, who was described by the Chicago Tribune as “one of the most important and most influential performance artists in Chicago during the late 1980s and 90s."

This event is held in conjunction with Gallery 400's current exhibit, Reckless Rolodex, which continues through March 18. Reckless Rolodex highlights the legacy of Steger by showing works by contemporary artists responding to his research practice and oeuvre.

Join the discussion with the exhibition's co-curator Matthew Goulish, and participating artists Max Guy, Mark Jeffery, Devin T. Mays, John Neff, and Cherrie Yu, as they share how Steger's archives and legacy influenced their work.

This event is presented as part of Art Design Chicago Now, an initiative funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art that amplifies the voices of Chicago's diverse creatives, past and present, and explores the essential role they play in shaping the now.
