Cecilia Beaven: Two-Headed Turtle

@ SITE Galleries

37 S Wabash Ave, Chicago IL, 60603

Opening Friday, January 25th, from 4:15PM - 5:45PM

On view through Saturday, February 16th

Two-Headed Turtle, Cecilia Beaven’s (MFA 2019) first solo show in Chicago, curated by Giannella Ysasi (MA 2019), presents the ludic development of Beaven’s personal mythology through painting, animation and film. Beaven creates an extended painting by transforming the two dimensional and pictorial into the cinematic and the scenographic. In Two-Headed Turtle, Beaven’s ethnographic and mythological searches are assembled into a monstrous, fragile and introspective setting.

At the opening reception, enjoy some Mexican food and watch Comparza de Morelos la Original perform Chinelo dance.
