Special Session: Petlacoatl Tour + Museo Screening

@ Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts

915 E 60th St, Chicago, IL 60637

Opening Wednesday, January 9th, from 5:30PM - 10PM

On view through Saturday, January 13th


Join us for the first art making session of winter, a collaboration with Logan Center Exhibitions around the current solo exhibition “Petlacoatl” by Mariana Castillo Deball.

We will meet at 5:30pm at the Logan Center gallery doors for a tour of “Petlacoatl” led by Exhibitions Coordinator Alyssa Brubaker.
Mariana Castillo Deball explores representations of cultures through material artifacts, drawing from anthropology and archeology. “Petlacoatl” investigates ancient Mesoamerican systems of time measurement and divination.
The exhibition is up through January 13th, so this is a good time to catch it before closing! This is also a great opportunity to learn more about Castillo Deball’s research, sources, and compelling colors and forms.

At 6pm we will head to the Great Hall for an art session inspired by “Petlacoatl”. Participants are invited to respond to Castillo Deball’s works and sources. During exhibition, the session, we will screen “Museo,” an acclaimed new release recommended to us by the artist. “Museo” (2018, dir. Alonso Ruizpalacios) recounts the 1985 robbery of over a hundred pre-Colombian artifacts from the National Anthropology Museum of Mexico.

As always, Kitchen Sink will provide art materials — pencils pastels papers oils acrylics collage face paint and more — and all are welcome to join!
