Chipping away: Considering the spheres of tramp artSeptember 9, 2018
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Tramp art is an endlessly curious art form found mostly in Europe and North America, but whose origins remain unclear.
In her lecture, Lisa Stone, curator of the Roger Brown Study Collection at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, will ponder German connections to American tramp art, and variations on the urge to carve and assemble, including Junkerhaus in Germany, Karl Junker’s astonishingly original tramp art-esque architectural wonder that is carved inside and out.
