Collective Threads

Join artist-in-residence Victoria Martinez as she shares research about the African Presence in Mexico, her studio process, and projects facilitated throughout her residency at the University of Chicago Arts Incubator. Participate in creating a weaving with paper images of textiles from Africa and Mexico and learn how fibers connect various communities.

This program is in conjunction with the exhibition "Carrying A Place Called Home," the culminating program for the 2017-18 resident artists, Victoria Martinez, Arif Smith, and Brittney Leeanne Williams. The exhibition features new works the artists produced during their ten-month residency at the Arts Incubator in Washington Park that reflect on identity, memory, and place through painting, collage, dance and video.

Exhibition on view: July 20–August 31, 2018
