Bisa Butler: Portraits. Exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago
February 20 @ 11:00 AM - September 6 @ 6:00 PM EST
From the event organizer:
She strategically uses textiles—a traditionally marginalized medium—to interrogate the historical marginalization of her subjects while using scale and subtle detail to convey her subjects’ complex individuality. Together, Butler’s quilts present an expansive view of history through their engagement with themes such as family, community, migration, the promise of youth, and artistic and intellectual legacies. Bisa Butler: Portraits is the first solo museum exhibition of the artist’s work and will include over 20 portraits.
Closed Tuesday and Wednesday.
