The President’s Gallery at Harold Washington College presents “Institutionalized,” an art exhibition featuring work that explores different institutions – from mental health institutions to the frameworks around consumer culture. The six artists, Robert Ives, Matt Bodett, Edwin Parker, Gabrielle Jensen, David Merrick, and Yatsu Sada, are part of Alogia Projects, a group with the goal to make challenging and financially accessible artwork. In this exhibition, the artists explore various institutions using photography, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, collage, and text-based works.

Alogia Projects was formed with the idea that art belongs to experience, that the moment of seeing places one in communication. Not all artwork moves or transcends, but artwork can improve and refine the habits of life. Alogia Projects artists are dedicated to making artwork accessible to all who wish to participate.
