‘OUTCRY (2018)’
Curated by former DPAM Director Julie Rodrigues Widholm

Chicago-based photographer Whitney Bradshaw creates and encourages an empowering vision of contemporary women and to capture both diversity and collective experience, drawing upon her own background in social work. Her process involves inviting groups of women who don’t know one another to her studio for a gathering, focusing on community building as well as supporting each other as they, bravely, let out feelings that are often silenced or dismissed in our culture. “Outcry” provides women a space where they can be heard, supported and encouraged to speak out and up for themselves and for one another.

Screengrab Paintings with Dushko Petrovich this week!

Thursday, March 18, 6:00pm

Dushko Petrovich, chair of SAIC New Arts Journalism, will discuss a series of screenshot paintings he has been making during the pandemic. After pulling these photographs, maps, and graphs from the flux of his online experience, Pertrovich decided to translate them into paintings—in hopes that the shifts in physicality, scale, and means of circulation would give them a second, more reflective existence.

ARTIST TAKEOVER: On our Instagram, ‘LatinxAmerican’ artist Alberto Aguilar will walk throughout #Chicago neighborhoods with a different guest artist every other Wednesday. The pair will visit sites from the past in order to become more present while walking. They will speak about various topics that may be affected by things they encounter along the way. What happens on each walk will be unplanned but meaning will emerge and reflect each guest artist.

Happy #InternationalWomensDay ! To create 'Proposals for a Translation,' artist Hương Ngô reached out to a group of artists and activists, who identify as Vietnamese or part of the Vietnamese diaspora, for possible translations for the term feminism into Vietnamese. Using their replies, she created this set of stamps with a custom typeface, carved with the proposed translations. The stamps were used to create the accompanying publication, printed with narratives and explanations from the participants about their particular translation of #feminism.

#EveryMonthisBlackHistoryMonth --- “Through my art I want people to see the strength and character of the disenfranchised, and not pass judgement on them because they are living on the fringes of society.”

In his painting, ‘Es**rt,’ artist Jesse Howard depicts the early morning or late afternoon scenes from his neighborhood on Chicago’s south side: the escorting of students, by gang members, to and from school.

‘CLAUDIA PEÑA SALINAS: QUETZALLI’
February 18- August 15

The work of Mexican artist Claudia Peña Salinas is inspired by indigenous thinking and worldviews calling attention to the Americas collective cultural memory. Salinas's Quetzalli is a site-specific installation at DePaul Art Museum that centers on the Aztec headdress, Penacho de Moctezuma, an object that has become a symbol of national identity for both Mexico and Austria. Quetzalli highlights the issues around the provenance of ancient artifacts and the role museums play in formulating cultural identities.

This photograph of the city by #YasuhiroIshimoto seemed fitting with all of the cloudy and snowy days we’ve had lately!

“Ishimoto considered both Chicago and Tokyo as his home and showed his devotion to his adopted city in Chicago, Chicago, (Bijutsu Shuppan-sha, 1969). This book was for many years regarded as Ishimoto’s most personal statement – in it his bold use of contrast, the design of the frame, and the influence of his studies in architecture define his Chicago.” -Stephen Daiter Gallery

#EveryMonthisBlackHistoryMonth - After teaching himself photography, Gordon Parks (The Gordon Parks Foundation) became known for his powerful imagery reflecting the Black experience within the United States. Parks’s work ranges from fashion shoots to emotional portraiture with images that evoke activism and social change-- such as his historical documentation of members of the Nation of Islam on Chicago’s South Side and the Civil Rights Movement.
