The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Visiting Artists Program presents:

Sonya Clark: Distinguished Alumni Lecture Series Tuesday, March 28, 6:00 p.m. The Art Institute of Chicago, Rubloff Auditorium, 230 S. Columbus Dr.

Sonya Clark’s (BFA 1993) artwork and projects trace connections between hair and textiles, communities and commodities, and radicalized identities. Her works invoke ancestral ties, historical legacies, and address contemporary relationships through found objects and collaborative actions. As an African American artist, she uses craft as a means to honor her lineage and expand notions of both Americanness and art. She formally manipulates materials to engage the viewer in conversation forming a visual vocabulary of language ranging from the vernacular to the political to the poetic.

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Visiting Artists Program presents:

Huma Bhabha Tuesday, March 14, 6:00 p.m. The Art Institute of Chicago, Rubloff Auditorium, 230 S. Columbus Dr.

New York-based artist Huma Bhabha creates work that addresses universal themes of colonialism, war, displacement, and memories of place. Using found materials of everyday life, Bhabha creates haunting figures that hover between figuration and abstraction, the monumental and the abject. Bhabha is known for her engagement with the human form and for her use of found objects. Her materials include Styrofoam, scavenged wood, found metal parts, chicken wire, cork, and air-dried clay, which she forms into complex assemblages. By using diverse media, she creates figures that feel unstable and ephemeral.
