@ Northern Illinois University (NIU) Art Museum

Altgeld Hall 595 College Ave, DeKalb, IL 60115

Opening Thursday, September 7th, from 5PM - 7PM

On view through Saturday, October 14th

Join us for the opening reception of “Dialogue” and “The Remaining, Mourn…” in the Art Museum galleries. Informal curator and artist talk for “The Remaining, Mourn…” begins at 5:45 p.m. Refreshments provided.

“The Remaining, Mourn…” is a group exhibition addressing the experience of grieving as seen through the lens of nine artists’ practices. Through tactile artworks, they address both individual and collective loss. Holding materials as one would onto someone lost, these artists use various techniques to freeze a moment, allowing themselves time to process what remains as well as what is gone. Their materials, and the memories and emotions they evoke, become the “language” the artist use to create their own rituals to navigate grief/mourning and work toward healing.

The artists featured in this exhibition include Selva Aparicio, Michael Chambers, April Dauscha, Salvador Jiménez-Flores, Millicent Kennedy, Allen Moore, Monika Plioplyte, Nirmal Raja and Anne Wilson.

Cumulatively, these works and the stories they tell remind us that we—from family to community to civilization—are united by our vulnerability.

Curated by Michael Chambers and Millicent Kennedy.
