Hyde Park Art Center and Centre Regional de la Photographie (CRP) are pleased to announce a two-part exhibition, which debuts the artwork produced during a year-long residency exchange between the organizations. “Resilient Images.”
Featuring artists David Schalliol and Justine Pluvinage, “Resilient Images” is the result of two eight week residencies, within which the artists developed site-specific, research-based projects through engaging with new communities and investigating current social and political conditions in each area. Residencies connected artists with relevant people, scholars, and other practitioners to facilitate their research, and both projects highlight the reality of life inside these two vastly different locations. With the notion of human resilience at the center of both projects which are sited in post-industrial urban spaces undergoing change, artists Schalliol and Pluvinage mine the ways in which people have coped with and adapted to a rapidly transforming reality, due to financial, political or social change.
Beyond a shared theme, both artists utilize lens-based media in their practices: Schalliol will premiere a new series of photographs, while Pluvinage has created a new site-specific video work to be unveiled as part of a two-person exhibition titled Resilient Images, beginning January 7, 2018 at Hyde Park Art Center. A public reception supported by the French Consulate for the Midwest, featuring both artists will take place on Sunday, January 14 from 2-5pm. More events & info located at the bottom of the page.
