The Art Institute of Chicago: Josef Koudelka: Nationality Doubtful

/noise | Link

The Art Institute of Chicago offers talks by artists periodically, and I figured I should go take a look at one, being a member and all. Josef Koudelka took many of the famous photographs of the Prague Spring. Fullerton Hall was packed; I hadn't realised there were so many Czech emigres in Chicago. I had a quick look at the exhibition before the talk started at 6pm. The discussion wasn't too successful, and I wish they'd let him show his three ten-minute short films; why not expand it to a 90 minute event?
