Silos

Tuesday, January 17 at 9:00am to 5:00pm more dates through February 18, 2017

Glass Curtain Gallery 1104 S Wabash Ave, 1st Floor, Chicago, IL 60605

As a microcosm of our society, the art world maintains a system of marginalization based on racial and cultural difference. Artists identified as “other” function in silos, just as they do in society.

This exhibition presents 11 artists who examine these silos, otherness, and the cultural and social ramifications of marginalization based on one’s identity, whether self-defined or inscribed. Bearing witness, as these artists do, not only identifies the pressing issues of our time but also challenges the norm of marginalization, absence, and exclusion.

Through the work of Yaw Agyeman, Wesley Clark, Nathaniel Donnett, Shané K. Gooding, Esau McGhee, Johana Moscoso, Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz, Ellington Robinson, Stacy-Lynn Waddell, Rhonda Wheatley, and Wilmer Wilson IV, Silos gives voice to the silence(d).
