Spent a gorgeous weekend ART talking with these brilliant people and many other creators and culture changing minds at Michael Armitage @manairobi THE GATHERING a marvellous, mind expanding, gorgeous event... Sprouted from conversations he's had with #TheasterGates and with legandary #WilliamKentridge there too!

INSTAMEET!
Join us on Tuesday, February 28 from 12-1pm for a special preview of our exhibition "In the Tower: Theaster Gates." This new installation in our Tower 3 galleries explores the power of discarded and ordinary objects, considering how they acquire value through the stories we tell.
This social media event will feature a Q&A with the artist as well as time in the exhibition before it opens to the public on March 5. Spots are limited. To sign up, visit: http://bit.ly/theaster

Theaster Gates has left the building @regenprojects (Thank U Shaun for the tour) #theastergates

"To be a poor man is hard, but to be a poor race in a land of dollars is the very bottom of hardships." – #WEBDuBois, sociologist, civil rights activist and author of the seminal book "The Souls of Black Folk" (published in 1903) which put a spotlight on the genius and the humanity of the black race. This quote from the book is the inspiration behind #TheasterGates' 1st exhibition of works @regenprojects, which celebrates how power and beauty can be found and created from a poverty of materials in art - here as imagined African reliquary objects or other historic black forms. #ADAAGalleries #ADAABlackHistory

From the permanent collection @brooklynmuseum -- #TheasterGates "In Case of Race Riots II" features an encased fire hose. The title of the work says it all and puts everything into perspective.

Glenn Ligon at Theaster Gates's REBUILD Foundation in Chicago inside a former bank building. Most exquisite library and ephemera collections of black literature, representation and culture - stunning and startling to take in. #theastergates #rebuildfoundation #blackart #dobetteramerica

#peopleofcolorpeopleofclay Theaster Gates! I met this awesome human being when I was learning the craft of welding in Chicago as a young SAIC student. I knew he was cool but, wow he's gotten huge! His social urban redevelopment art projects are beautiful. He sings during art speeches, he's an inspiration, and I love running into his work in museums all over. #theastergates #potterysavedmylife #chicago
