"CREATIVE CONVERSATIONS" ART TALKS is a forum/lecture series hosted by curators during gallery exhibitions. The Phantom Gallery will look at how the city influences art, and how the artist transforms the city by contributing to civic dialogue and quality of life. These installations will produce "Creative Conversations" presenting artist speaking about their art.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Public conversation and innovative, interactive art activation occurred earlier this evening in a vacant retail office space in the historic Anthony Overton building, 3619 South State Street, where participating artist Toussaint Werner, Pop-up installation Curator Paula Robinson and Phantom Gallery Chicago Chief Curator Alpha Bruton were panel discussion participants in a dialog and photographic exhibit about 'Black men missing, missing Black men' moderated by arts activist Larissa Akinremia-Johnson. Internet activation and technical assistance were provided by Darryl Hite. This pop-up art exhibit provides opportunities for an artist to exhibit their art while fostering economic development and cultural heritage tourism development in the historically significant Bronzeville community. This arts activation pop-up installation features the B&W images of a family of professional photographers. While they captured the moments of life and events for family, friends, and clients, these candid, intimate shots mark the passages on the other side of the lens documenting the life of family, fatherhood and the fate of our communities. The story illustrated through one family emulates the sentiments of us all. The curation team sought to use the full depth of the gallery space to communicate the passage of time and the inevitable passing of the family patriarch.
