**Exciting online public program announcement**
A NATURAL TURN CONVERSATION:
What is the “natural” for each of these artists? What roles does imagination and the surreal play in each of their works? What does figuration (and abstraction) provide to them? We will have a unique chance to hear directly from “A Natural Turn” artists: María Berrío, Joiri Minaya, Rosana Paulino, and Kelly Sinnapah Mary this Wednesday, November 16 at 6pm CT ONLINE.

Violent arrests of African American protesters during the Civil Rights movement proved that the fight for equality would not come easily. The work of photographer Danny Lyon is a portal into the struggle and his commitment to capturing injustice shows just how powerful a camera can be. GO VOTE!

In-person lecture: This Wednesday, November 9 at 6pm CT we welcome Joiri Minaya for an artist talk as part of the exhibition “A Natural Turn: María Berrío, Joiri Minaya, Rosana Paulino, and Kelly Sinnapah Mary” curated by Ionit Behar. This is Minaya’s first exhibition and talk in Chicago! Minaya is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work investigates the female body within constructions of identity, multicultural social spaces and hierarchies. Born in New York, she grew up in the Dominican Republic. Minaya has exhibited internationally across the Caribbean and the US.

This program is supported by DePaul’s Department of Latin American and Latino Studies and the Center for Latino Research.

Please join us Sunday, October 23 at 1pm for an in-person tour of A Natural Turn: María Berrío, Joiri Minaya, Rosana Paulino and Kelly Sinnapah Mary with the exhibition’s curator, Ionit Behar , PhD. This exhibition features the works of four artists living in the Americas: María Berrío (Colombian, b. 1982), Joiri Minaya (Dominican-United Statesian, b. 1990), Rosana Paulino (Brazilian, b. 1967), and Kelly Sinnapah Mary (Indo-Guadeloupean, b. 1981). Pushing the boundaries of figuration, Berrío, Minaya, Paulino, and Sinnapah create bold and unforgettable images of truth and fiction within both personal and collective histories. Their works exist at the intersection of individual imagination and our shared natural, socio- and geopolitical landscapes––a unique space that mixes both beauty and violence at once. The tour will explore the artists’ surrealist approach to figuration as a means to interrogate structures of power and borders—those defined by geography, nationality, or language—to expand our understanding of the real and the imagined.

New DePaul Art Exhibit Explores State Violence and Reparations

Thank you WTTW News for your coverage of DPAM's "Remaking the Exceptional" exhibition and publication! Closing Sunday!

An exhibition at the DePaul Art Museum titled “Remaking the Exceptional: Tea, Torture and Reparations, Chicago to Guantanamo” is acknowledging 20 years since the opening of a United States extra-legal prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The late Claes Oldenburg was in many ways a Chicago artist—though born in Sweden, his family relocated to Chicago in 1936. At the beginning of the 20th century, Chicago had the second highest Swedish population in the world after Sweden’s capital Stockholm. As a young artist Oldenburg attended a summer program at Ox-Bow (Saugatuck, MI) in 1953 where he made the lithograph pictured here. The second image from 1968 is a small print overlaid with vellum depicting a typewriter eraser—a recurring figure in Oldenburg’s work—which he playfully labels “ear.” In his “Notes at Hand,” the artist explains that the peculiar little object also resembles a belly button and other parts of human anatomy. In 1961 Oldenburg wrote, “I am for all art that takes its form from the line of life itself, that twists and extends and accumulates and spits and drips, and is heavy and coarse and blunt and sweet and stupid as life itself.”

DPAM is saddened to hear of the loss of the brilliant Sam Gilliam. In a recent interview Gilliam said, “Art is something that is present because it’s in memory. It surpasses time, boundaries, and continuation.” To remember Gilliam we had to take a fresh look at this beautiful 1996 mixed media print “As Kids Go” from our permanent collection (Collection of DePaul Art Museum, Gift of Anthony Podesta 2001.49).

04/22/2022

has us thinking a lot about this work from Illinois artist Laurie Hogin ( ). Hogin draws upon the style of seventeenth century European still life painting and “vanitas”, which portray objects that symbolize mortality, to make a statement on pollution and the environment. The painting’s title literally translates to “stuffed chicken at the love canal.” It imagines a chicken that is suffering from the impact of an incident in the Love Canal neighborhood of Niagra Falls, New York, in which the massive amount of pollution from years of chemical waste dumping resulted in the declined health of hundreds of area residents. Rather than portraying the grandiosity and opulence typically associated with vanitas paintings, Hogin points out the social consequences of nature caught in the midst of an indulgent human civilization.

Chicago art directors and curators discuss working in a pandemic and what they imagine for the future.

"I'm excited about the ways in which curators, museum education/engagement staff, and exhibition designers are working together to center community engagement, thoughtful program development, and visitor experience. This way of working emphasizes that the connections made and conversations and actions that take place before and after an exhibition is on view are as important as the presentation of the exhibition itself and the programming that accompanies it." - Janet Dees
