This is a personal invitation to have a professional development share-out at the exhibition of Alberto Aguilar. An artist-teacher gathering about your expertise prepared by Jorge Lucero and Chicago Arts Partnership in Education.

Meet each other. Receive a tour of the retrospective exhibition moves on human scale. Guest are invited to participate in a discussion session where the knowledge we bring to the space is the material for teaching practice as art. Every participant is fully acknowledged as a professional in development, made over years of life. Also as a gift, the professional may give of themselves to others. With the guests all contributing to this artist-teacher professional development in proximity of Alberto Aguilar’s exhibition, the session will be as robust or quiet as the participants want it to be.

Here are simple instructions on how to partake in this PD:

a) Accept this invitation by coming to Gallery 400 on the appointed date

b) Come prepared to share your professional development experience with others for the professional development’s sake of all attending guests.

c) Know that you made artwork by coming together with other artist-teachers

* The network is/ are/ be the PD, always evolving, never static.

** This authorship is collective and it’s individual as well; there is tension between clarity and generative ambiguities.

*** There is uncertainty/ the unknown/ and moving towards not knowing; questioning

leads to and ends in questioning, important vulnerability.
