In Odes and Tattoos, student artists have studied, explored and rendered visually the ode as a poetic commemorative device, and tattoos as visual markers of personal events and histories. This Gallery Talk will feature students, teaching artists, and teachers in conversation about their process.
Odes and Tattoos, an exhibition of art from CAPE students at North-Grand High School in Humboldt Park, attempts to tackle these questions through the creation of multidisciplinary artworks that examine how history and culture are manifested through art. Through their work with CAPE Teaching Artists Marc Fischer and Jose Luis Benavides and teachers Karen Furlong and Lisa Welsh, the students also explored how they themselves can find agency by re-presenting the social and cultural. Odes and Tattoos is a multimedia exhibit of work by student artists who studied, explored, and rendered visually the ode as a poetic commemorative device, and tattoos as visual markers of personal events and histories.
Please join us in the Michigan Avenue Galleries at the Chicago Cultural Center, 1st Floor South, for this FREE final event of CAPE’s Odes and Tattoos exhibition!
