Featuring Artists: Edra Soto & Yhelena Hall
A collaborative exhibition between members of the Chicago Cultural Alliance, the The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture and the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art. Investigating seemingly everyday objects to reveal a much greater story about neighborhood identity, placemaking and city life, the exhibition highlights the work of two emerging artists, both of whom explore structural elements of urban landscapes. Edra Soto revisits Puerto Rico’s vernacular architecture through her GRAFT installations and architectural interventions, and Yhelena Hall touches on the history of Chicago and explores a marginal state of detritus becoming artifacts through her series Polished Remnants.
This exhibition is coinciding with In Good Company, a group exhibition presented by The Arts of Life. And Furtive a photography-based exhibition that explores the complexity of memory Curated by Filter Photo.
This exhibition is presented through DCASE’s ArtsSpace in-kind grant program and supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Forgotten Forms runs February 2, 2019 – April 7, 2019 at the Chicago Cultural Center, Michigan Avenue Galleries. The exhibition is free too all and open weekdays 10am–7pm and weekends 10am–5pm.
