Muscle Memories
June 14 – July 6, 2019
Chicago Art Department

Herman Aguirre, Aviv Benn, Cameron Clayborn, Jesse Meredith, and Marcela Torres

Curated by Rachel McDermott

To protect ourselves from past, present, and future harms, we each engage in self-preservation behaviors in order to process, cope, and move forward. “Muscle Memories” investigates the fixation brought on by self-preservation thinking, questioning how and whose bodies are affected and implicated. By exploring the effects of internalized social and political pressures on the body and mind, five artists ask how we prepare for the unexpected and visualize the unpredictable–but inevitable–future? Acknowledging that memories can have a lasting impact on how we navigate physical and emotional spaces, how do these exhaustive processes push towards better futures? Can these preparations and anticipations themselves produce catastrophe?

The opening is free and open to all! Free Write Presents: In Conversation opens the same evening at the Chicago Art Department.

Exhibition on view through July 6, 2019.
