Chicago Works - Amanda Williams

Museum Of Contemporary Art Chicago | Chicago
$8 - $15
The exhibition presents a new series that is an extension of Amanda Williams breakout Color(ed) Theory project, which was presented at the first Chicago Architectural Biennial in 2015.

For that project, Williams painted eight houses slated for demolition in the Englewood neighborhood with vivid colors inspired by Chicago’s South Side in order to draw attention to the racial undertones of discussions about urban design and decay. At the MCA, Williams presents sculptures that extend from this formative work, using bricks and siding from the painted houses that have since been demolished. She highlights how demolition as a force of erasure and unmaking and the afterlife of building materials shape the lives of urban citizens.

This artistic gesture holds the potential to raise difficult questions about the social and political fabric of our city.

The exhibition is over since the 31/12/2017
