First presented by 6018 North in spring 2019, under the title 'Living Architecture,' In Flux is a large-scale, multidisciplinary exhibition that highlights the influence and impact of immigrant artists on Chicago. The exhibition responds to the current political climate to highlight how Chicago was built with immigrant labor, particularly in the arts, and is continuously shaped today by exemplary immigrant artists. With over 20 contemporary artists, In Flux: Chicago Artists and Immigration illustrates a living and evolving legacy between past and present work by Chicago immigrants in art and design.
Curated by Tricia Van Eck, Director of 6018 North
Monday, April 20, 7pm: Alberto Aguilar, Julietta Cheung, Rodrigo Lara Zendejas
