1/4th Century Poy Born: Bildungsroman

@ The Student Union Galleries (SUGs)

37 South Wabash Avenue, Suite 106, Chicago, IL 60603

Opening Monday, March 10th, from 4PM - 6PM

On view through Thursday, March 31st

Named for a German loanword describing a coming-of-age tale, Bildungsroman directly addresses the pressure exerted on young artists to professionalize from both within and outside the art world. Self-consciously “grown up” objects, as framed by the student-run Leroy Neiman Center Gallery, question relationships between the esoteric and the legible, “hobby” and “career,” and child’s play and mature authorship. At its most essential, Bildungsroman is a representation of children playing at being adults.
