In Flux: Chicago Artists and Immigration

@ Chicago Cultural Center

78 E Washington St, Chicago, IL 60602

Opening Friday, February 14th, from 5PM - 8PM

On view through Sunday, May 10th

Join us on Valentine’s Day to celebrate the 25 artists in this multidisciplinary exhibition which responds to the current political climate surrounding immigration. Drawing from past and present, the work of previous Chicago immigrants, and their own experiences, the artists present a complicated, personal view of migration. Through a range of approaches and mediums, the exhibition highlights the invaluable impact of immigrant artists who continuously shape and reorient arts and culture to inform and challenge the present.

Featured artists include: Alberto Aguilar, Kioto Aoki, Amanda Assaley and Qais Assali, Yesenia Bello, Tom Burtonwood, Derek Chan, Eugenia Cheng, Julietta Cheung, Sabba Elahi, Silvia Gonzalez with Joseph Josue Mora and Patricia Nguyen, Óscar I González Díaz, Lise Haller Baggesen, Rodrigo Lara Zendejas, Benjamin Larose, Kirsten Leenaars, Wen Liu, Yvette Mayorga, Frédéric Moffet, Sherwin Ovid, Roni Packer, Emilio Rojas, Moises Salazar, Maryam Taghavi, Jan Tichy, Orkideh Torabi, and Ji Yang.

Kioto Aoki plays Taiko drums to open the exhibition: 6 and 7pm
Make art with William Estrada’s Mobile Street Art Cart to share the love of immigrant artists!
