Chicago Stories: Carlos Javier Ortiz and David Schallio Apr 11 — Jul 7, 2019

Join us for the opening reception of Birmingham, Alabama, 1963: Dawoud Bey/Black Star and Chicago Stories: Recent Works by Carlos Javier Ortiz and David Schalliol.

In response to Birmingham, Alabama, 1963: Dawoud Bey/Black Star, this exhibition showcases photographs and films by Carlos Javier Ortiz and David Schalliol pulled from the museum’s permanent collection and the Midwest Photographers Project (MPP). Both artists separately investigate forms of systemic racism in Chicago and beyond through the lens of individual stories.
