Madhuri Shukla: Pedestrian

@ Roman Susan

1224 W. Loyola Avenue, Chicago 60626

Opening Saturday, July 27th, from 7PM - 10PM

On view through Saturday, August 24th

Madhuri Shukla creates drawings, sculptures, and animation with a wiry and spontaneous line quality to explore the space between a childlike aesthetic and dark narratives.

Shukla’s work focuses on when and why abuses are accepted and even celebrated in cartoons but are repulsive in ‘real’ life. A background in Urban Studies influences her work. In this series Shukla engages themes of difference, racism and violent crime. Her images read rapidly and easily on an initial and superficial level–maybe even register as cute–but upon thoughtful inspection convey an articulated meaning.

Gallery Hours: Tuesdays 8 pm to 10 pm & by appointment
