Thought this would be interesting for us to check out. Regisiter here. It's free but you have to go through process of buying a ticket to register, no payment needed.. Here's the description from the MCA:

How do collaboratives created by cultural practitioners of African descent provide new perceptions, understandings, and forms of practice? This conference brings together key individuals from around the globe, including Otolith Group cofounder Kodwo Eshun, artists Theaster Gates and Rick Lowe, musician George Lewis, and Tate.

Gallery curator Elvira Dyangani Ose, among others, to broach this timely question. Organized by Huey Copeland, Associate Professor at Northwestern, and Naomi Beckwith at the MCA.

    I am just now realizing that pre-registration was required. The event is now sold out. Is there anyone who has registered and unable to go, if so I would like to take your spot.

      Since there is no payment involved it probably won't be an issue.
