Daija Guy: In Transition

@ The Martin

2500 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL 60633

Opening Friday, March 11th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Saturday, March 19th

Daija Guy is a Chicago-based photographer and wheat-paste artist who captures moments and strips them down to their core, specializing in self-portraits, lifestyle and fashion.

She is bright, bubbly, fun and gets her inspiration from train rides, sunlight and pondering what’s under the surface of life. She creates to explore the endless shift of her being and uncover the truth that is within her.

In her solo exhibition IN TRANSITION, Daija explores her self portraits as practice. From the artist: As humans, we are always evolving into a new state of being. This transformative state is what I capture. My self-portraits are exposed moments of my endless metamorphosis. Each image is a different version of myself at different stages in my life. These stages can be weeks, days, or months apart. No matter the length of “time”—there is change.

Daija’s work will be on display at The Martin from March 4th – 20th, but join us on March 11th for a celebration of her exhibition alongside Erica McKeehan’s solo exhibition, AUTHORING ALLURE.

Our celebration of the exhibition will go from 6-9pm! All guests must provide proof of vaccination upon arrival and remain masked while in the space. A card only bar will be available for purchase.

Want to grab dinner at Split-Rail before the exhibition? We recommend making a reservation! Plan on staying after and having a drink at Dorothy – just ask us how!
