Recipes for Madeleines

@ SITE Sharp

37 S Wabash Ave, Chicago IL, 60603

Opening Thursday, October 4th, from 4:15PM - 5:45PM

On view through Saturday, October 27th

Recipes for Madeleines brings together artists Fabienne Elie (MFA, 2018), Helen Lee (MFA, 2019), Yan Zhou (MFA, 2015), and Ornella Fieres, whose works critically engage the relationship between nostalgia and media. Although nostalgia as a psychological, social and political phenomenon has existed for centuries, the current emergence of nostalgic aesthetics starts to constitute nostalgia as a contemporary condition, a side-effect of technological advancement and political uneasiness. By opening up a discussion around our contemporary experiences of remembering, this exhibition serves as an opportunity to reflect upon the role of media not only as a platform for reimagining the past but also as a way of working through the history for the present.
