In Decay: Stitching America’s Ruins

@ Chicago Cultural Center

78 E. Washington

Opening Friday, April 13th, from 5:30PM - 7:30PM

On view through Wednesday, June 20th

The Chicago Cultural Center proudly presents the large-scale photographs of Eric Holubow. His subjects are architectural interiors of places man has forgotten, but time has not. His work tells stories of times past that play out in the viewer’s mind. Whether in the engine room at the former industrial behemoth Bethlehem Steel or the impressive view from the stage of the Uptown Theater, all of these cultural cornerstones now stand silent. Whether grand or commonplace, Holubow’s images share an inherent beauty that few recognize in a building’s final days. Holubow has chosen to capture these fleeting moments and reveal them to us, perhaps to act as a reminder of our own mortality. His highly detailed, ultra-wide angle photographs are startling in their magnitude and explicitness. This show is set in the Michigan Avenue Gallery’s intimate south salon – a choice that serves to further draw the viewer in.
