Chicago Artists Resource>>Latest Jobs, Upcoming Deadlines, & More on CAR! (Chicago,IL)
The Terra Foundation for American Art has announced Art Design Chicago,
"a wide-ranging initiative to explore the breadth of Chicago’s role as a
catalyst and incubator for innovations in art and design".
Hot pinks and sugary detritus dominate the installations of
Chicago-based artist Yvette Mayorga. In her most recent show, entitled
The Politics of Desire and presented at the Chicago Artists Coalition,
she uses a variety of mediums to comment on the inaccessibility of the
American Dream for Mexican immigrants crossing borderlands. Her ongoing
project, Borderland Series, communicates a narrative that encompasses
the experiences of immigrant citizens from a variety of oppressed
ethnicities. Through a wide array of media, ranging from acrylic
painting to found objects, The Politics of Desire invites viewers to
engage in a socio-political dialogue that would ordinarily be invisible in the white walls of a gallery space.
With interactive art installations, food by outstanding Chicago
restaurants, quirky entertainment, a silent auction with work by some of
Chicago's most dynamic artists, and a possible dance-off, WORK IN PROGRESS is anything but your ordinary affair.
Raising over $100,000, the benefit is Chicago Artists Coalition's largest
fundraising event of the year. All of the proceeds directly support
CAC's artist and curatorial residencies, education and professional
development workshops, ground-breaking exhibitions, and the online
platform Chicago Artists Resource .
