EXPO Chicago

0

Last weekend I went to The International Exposition of Contemporary & Modern Art at Navy Pier in Chicago and saw an absolutely overwhelming amount of art. There were over 100 galleries represented from around the world, as well as some special exhibitions. What was probably the coolest thing for me, was seeing Pearl Lam Galleries, as I have a friend from graduate school who works at their Shanghai location. I didn’t know the gallery was going to be there, much less that the woman I spoke to actually knew my friend! So, of course, we took a selfie together and sent it to her. Another cool finding was to see some works by Maria Tomasula represented by one of the galleries there, who teaches Art at Notre Dame and who I’ve worked with at the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture on an oral history of her life and work.

These are some of the artists represented at the EXPO that I was most taken by.

Latino artists in the Midwest

0

Recently, for my job at the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture, I’ve been conducting interviews with Latino/a artists along with Art Historian Amelia Malagamba in an effort to compile oral histories and trace Latino art in the Midwest. Not only are their families’ migration stories very interesting, as well as what inspires them artistically, they produce beautiful work that I think is worth looking at. Here are just a few examples:
