Julia Pello’s latest video piece, made for this exhibit, will be showing before the artist talk, 1.30 pm.
The exhibition explores the physical and emotional aspects of Race in America: subjugation, imprisonment, forgiveness, and rehabilitation, inviting the viewer to an insight that is both provocative and inspiring. The exhibition aims to emote the experience of being trapped, pursued, and embraced. The exhibition moves the viewer from Woodard Plaza, where artists create a live, human-cage installation, then across the street to the Hairpin Arts Center, for an exhibit of video, sculpture, paintings and an etching created for EXPO CHICAGO by renowned artist Dorian Allworthy.
