Aesthetics of Loss

@ Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art

2320 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

Opening Saturday, February 18th, from 12PM - 4PM

On view through Sunday, April 16th

AESTHETICS OF LOSS is a collection of work by seven artists who have experienced loss of family members recently. Their studios became places for grieving and understanding the sudden vacuum of losing loved ones either suddenly or over a long period of illness. Caregiving, memory, helplessness, loss and the ultimate mystery of death are explored through painting, print-making, fibers, ceramics, photography, installation and video. Some artists utilize objects and clothing left behind by their loved ones and transform them into artworks and some use ritual and natural materials as memorial or commemorative actions of grieving and coming to terms.

Aesthetics of Loss is a collective currently comprised of seven artists: EBTI, Cassidy Early, Brianna L. Hernández, Linda B. Marcus, Jessica Meuninck-Ganger, Nirmal Raja, and Anders Zanichkowsky.
