Visit Critical Conversations at CIA galleries

Critical Conversations: Art in Practice is a Cleveland Institute of Art studio/seminar class in which students engage in semester-long research of a single contemporary artist. During the Fall 2022 semester, students selected their research subjects from The Progressive Art Collection and created new works in response. The show is on view December 9 through January 23 in the Ann and Norman Roulet Student + Alumni Gallery, the Donna and Stewart Kohl Corridor, and the Mary Ann and Jack Katzenmeyer Student Lounge.
