The Overlook Place proudly presents Bienvenidos Tú y Yo, new works by Artists in Residence Jose Luis Benavides (b. 1986) and Amanda Cervantes (b. 1994), sharing their equal parts macabre and mournful investigations into their immigrant, Mexican family histories.
Join us for the opening at The Overlook in Logan Square for a night of drinks, food and brief performances by local artists ALEXA GRÆ and Silvia Inés Gonzalez on Nov. 4th, 2017 at 7-10pm.
Bienvenidos Tú y Yo, an exhibition of new works by both recent UIC graduates, is a show of many emotional and psychic loops, using gifs, experimental photography and installation to honor the dead and ask meaningful questions of our waking world. Both artists’ returns to shifting homes poetically respond to their ancestors calling from the grave. These new works speak to both artists’ Mexican heritage just in time for your Día de los Muertos celebrations.
Exhibition will be on view November 4th – 30th.
