A Conversation with the Artists: Chance Encounters

6:00-6:30PM: Reception

GSC Gallery, Room 183, Behavioral Sciences Building, 1007 W. Harrison St.

Chance encounters is an installation of multi-media artworks by Emily Siefken and Salik Tanveer. The art was created following a chance meeting in Chicago on the 4th of July 2013.

Emily, a U.S Military combat veteran and artist, and Salik, a Pakistani American and emerging photographer struck up a spontaneous conversation on Navy Pier while creating artwork about the same view.

This show invites dialogue about all of the things we love about the City of Chicago, complex identities, and the gifts of connection that can occur through chance encounters.
