New Exhibit Brings Traditionally Overlooked Artists Within Reach

New Exhibit Brings Traditionally Overlooked Artists Within Reach

WDCB's Gary Zidek caught up with curator Allison Glenn and some of the other people involved with the new multi-venue art exhibition, OUT OF EASY REACH.

"Not only are we talking about an inequitable way of presenting and thinking about ideas. But we're also talking about a marginalization of voices. So, what I'm really hoping people can get from this exhibition, is that there are plenty of artists working in ways outside of what might be expected of them" - OUT OF EASY REACH curator Allison Glenn.

OUT OF EASY REACH is currently on display at DePaul Art Museum, Gallery 400 at UIC and the Stony Island Arts Bank.

Each exhibition venue will feature artists and artworks that are grouped based on themes.  At DePaul Art Museum, artists and artworks will be presented that consider landscape, the body and the archive.  Gallery 400 will include artists and artworks that are concerned with spatial politics, mapping and migration. Stony Island Arts Bank will feature works that consider process, time and material culture through assemblage practices.
