Professor Theaster Gates

Professor Theaster Gates was recently featured in an article from UChicago Arts discussing the five year anniversary of the Arts Incubator, the first project to open on the Arts Block.

“Art is the most innovative platform for creating rich relationships. The ability to construct a world and share the power of converting potential into action,” Gates said.

Since launching his vision for the Arts Block, Gates has cultivated a vibrant team of professionals who have served the artistic, programmatic, and educational ambitions of Arts + Public Life. This spring, Gates, a professor in the Department of Visual Arts and the College (DoVA), will transition into a new position as the Senior Advisor for Cultural Innovation and Advisor to Katherine Baicker, Dean of the Harris Public Policy.
