In conjunction with the Exhibition Prairie by artist Shawn Decker, Kate Dumbleton of the Arts Administration Program at the school of the Art Institute of Chicago has organized a panel discussion:
Panelists: Roscoe Mitchell, Ken Vandermark, Pamela Jennings
Moderator: Dieter Roelstraete
From cities to environmental ecosystems to musical notes, how things fit together and influence one another to shape patterns and systems is a topic of limitless discussion and a site of continuous innovation. This panel convenes some extraordinary thinkers across discipline to consider ideas such as organizing sound, planning dynamic spaces and innovative environments, improvising and self-organizing systems, and convening natural and manipulated environments.
