ISM Chicago Gallery Special Exhibition in Atrium April 20 - 24, 2015

Dancing for My Tribe: Photographs by Sharon Hoogstraten Gallery Talk: Thursday, April 23 at Noon in the gallery

As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, Sharon is creating a permanent record of Potawatomi Indians wearing their regalia, and how these modern-day people are preserving the traditional dress of their ancestors. The colors, patterns, and textures are remarkable, as are the people posing for their portraits. The old silver monochrome portraits of American Indians are magnificent and matchless, but they record a culture and people of the past. Native American traditions like regalia are not just remnants of a disappearing past, but individual expressions created today in designs that are still evolving and will be part of our future.

Please join us for the catalog release party and closing reception of the current Glass Curtain Gallery exhibition, Invisible from 5-7pm.

Invisible will explore the extreme edge of legibility in works by Chicago artists. While many of the works in Invisible are large in scale, the scope of work will only gradually emerge as visitors make their way through installations of sculpture, painting, video and drawing. The exhibition explores the visual delight and intellectual intrigue we find in the discovery of works that are both material and conceptual.

The catalog will be available free of charge, featuring an essay by Annika Marie and a curator statement by Annie Morse.

Participating artists: Paola Cabal, C. C. Ann Chen, Jessica Hyatt, Jessica Hyatt, Luftwerk and Kathleen McCarthy
