Join the artists for a tour of Forgotten Forms exhibition to hear more about how culture is represented through urban architectural design. After the tour, artist Edra Soto will engage visitors in an activity which references architectural patterns, which are prominently seen in her works.
Program begins in the Chicago Cultural Center’s Learning Lab, 1st Floor West.
Forgotten Forms is a collaborative exhibition between members of the Chicago Cultural Alliance, 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.
Forgotten Forms is a DCASE ArtsSpace collaboration, providing exhibition space and support to Chicago arts organizations through an application process.
