@ Glass Curtain Gallery

1104 S Wabash Ave, Chicago, IL 60605

Opening Friday, September 15th, from 5PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, November 4th

¡Sí, Se Puede! an exhibition that draws on the respective archives of Cesar Chavez, and Dolores Huerta and their work with the UFW (United Farm Workers) Movement. For the exhibition, five artists have immersed themselves in portions of the archive to create artworks. In addition to the artist’s new works a selection of Victor Alemán’s photographs of UFW activities will be on view. Taking place at Columbia College’s Glass Curtain Gallery, spanning along the Wabash Arts Corridor with two new murals and stretching west to partners in Pilsen and Little Village, this program provides a crucible for creating a dialogue about self-determination movements and the relationships between the archive, history, and current contemporary culture.

Participating artists: Victor Alemán, William Estrada, Ian Kerstetter, Victoria Martinez, Nicole Marroquin, and Gloria “Gloe” Talamantes, with murals by Hector Duarte and Sam Kirk.

This exhibition is facilitated by Meg Duguid with related programming facilitated by Rogelio Becerra-Ramirez.

This exhibition is generously funded by a grant from The Joyce Foundation and created with support from Cesar Chavez Foundation, United Farm Workers Foundation, Dolores Huerta Foundation, Chavez Institute for Law and Social Justice, and Walter P. Reuther Library
