    Theaster Gates is an artist and cultural planner. In his performances, installations, and urban interventions, Gates transforms spaces, institutions, traditions, and perceptions. Gates presented "In Search of a Pure Market" on Sept. 27th as part of the ArtPrize Speaker Series. Gates’s training as an urban planner and sculptor, and subsequent time spent studying clay, has given him keen awareness of the poetics of production and systems of organizing. Playing with these poetic and systematic interests, Gates has assembled gospel choirs, formed temporary unions, and used systems of mass production as a way of underscoring the need that industry has for the body. Gates was a participating artist in dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, Germany, the 2010 Whitney Biennial, and many other prominent exhibitions.

                      ArtPrize is one of my favorite things about Grand Rapids. I had my camera downtown for ArtPrize when the 'Lights in the Night' exhibit took place and decided film a little of it. This is what went down!
