Baby Blue Gallery is excited to announce the opening reception of Composed Under Compression, on Saturday May 7th from 5PM-9PM.
This show is the first solo-exhibition of Cat Bowyer, a chicago-based artist and educator. While the gallery was closed to the public, we invited Cat to utilize the gallery as a studio. Through ritualistic modes of making, the gallery became a temple where she created altars of play. The works are in part satire of patriarchal institutions, but also represent a survival technique through the pure joy of play. The icon of a column ‘composed under pressure’ represents the constant stress and uneasiness in professional life and womanhood.

Baby Blue Gallery is located in the MANA Contemporary building in Pilsen, in room 518 (5th Floor). Currently, MANA still requires masks to be worn in its shared spaces, e.g., hallways, stairs, foyer, etc.
