Alexandria Eregbu & Rami George: tide/tithe
@ Roots & Culture
1034 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60642
Opening Friday, April 15th, from 6PM - 9PM
On view through Saturday, May 14th
A body (of water) does not have to be still or contained.
For tide/tithe Alexandria Eregbu and Rami George navigate cultural influence and heritage, while considering what that might mean in a current climate of political unrest. Eregbu traces her Black American and Nigerian ancestry through sculpture and installation, often utilizing mythology as strategy. For George, the record of Arabness (and possible queerness embodied within that) manifests through video and found imagery.
While both of these projects are steeped in personal histories and narratives, together they also attempt to extract from these sites to generate something new – to extend a conversation. The personal may be political, but so too the political is personal.
With Ben Foch “Of Human Bondage” in the window gallery.
Through May 14th.
