The Age of Aquarius

@ The Renaissance Society

5811 S Ellis Ave, Chicago, IL 60637

Opening Sunday, March 13th, from 4PM - 7PM

On view through Sunday, May 1st

This show will address the lingering cultural fallout of the 1960s, in particular its effect on a generation of younger artists and their engagement with the period as it becomes more somberly remote. Fifteen years ago Newt Gingrich said the 1960s would come to be seen as a “temporary aberration” within the overall trajectory of U.S. history. Even if he is right, the ’60s remains a period with whose ideals we still reckon no matter how misguided, dark, or farcical they have since proven. This exhibition will include video and installation works by Carol Bove (b. 1971), Amy Grappell (b. 1965) and David Noonan (1969).
