The Art of Theaster Gates

Theaster Gates uses his creativity to rethink, reimagine, and recreate space where people come together to create community. Be inspired by Theaster’s brilliant Ted Talk.

Here’s an insightful quote from Theaster:

“The word artist has been too small for too long. In the past there may have been moments when the term meant a tremendous amount. It meant that a person could have any number of skills, including a deep knowledge of the sciences, of religion, of the physical body, of philosophy, and poetry, of music and that it all kind of landed in the word, ‘Artist.’”
