The Black Artists Retreat [B.A.R.], convened by Theaster Gates, was held in Chicago, IL over two days in August 2013. Our initial goal was to create the time and space for inter-generational dialogue that reflects and considers how contemporary artists of color engage collaboration and generosity. The retreat provided the time for artists to invest in themselves and other creatives outside of the institutional environment.
