Art + Design Stories: Contemporary Artist Spotlights

In an ongoing editorial partnership, Art Design Chicago Now has collaborated with Sixty Inches from Center, a non-profit online arts publication that supports and promotes art and writing outside of mainstream historical narratives, to produce a series of short video interviews highlighting the work of Chicago-based artists and creatives. We share the two most recent interviews below.

Through painting and drawing, Andrea Carlson (Ojibwe) cites entangled cultural narratives and challenges colonial institutional authority relating to Indigenous objects. In this video, she talks about her evolving body of work in addition to the need for museums in Chicago to more deeply engage with and support Native artists. 

Juarez Hawkins is an artist, educator, and curator. In this video, Hawkins describes the personal nature of her practice, citing the intersections of her work in sculpture and painting. She also shares her experience as a member of Sapphire & Crystals and Woman Made Gallery, two Chicago collectives founded in response to the lack of women's representation in galleries and museums.
