Check out our Artist Talk with Heather Brammeier for her recent solo exhibition, "Maybe Never."

Join artist, Heather Brammeier and our Curatorial Fellow, Gervais Marsh for an artist talk for Brammeier’s exhibition, Maybe Never. 

Maybe Never is a solo exhibition by sculptor, painter, and installation artist Heather Brammeier. Through a new site-responsive installation that connects contrasting colors with geometric forms, Brammeier’s work engages the viewers’ physical and perceptual boundaries. Asymmetrical stacking, attention to surfaces, and the use of light and shadow elicit contemplation on the difficulty of balancing hope with acceptance. This exhibition was selected by the Hyde Park Art Center’s Exhibition Committee from the Open Submission Program.

Hyde Park Art Center requires proof of vaccination for all eligible visitors ages 5&up. Masking and distancing are also required when visiting the Art Center.

Within its facility, the Art Center offers a comprehensive roster of programs that work in concert to make contemporary art more approachable. It does so by involving the community in dynamic engagement with art and artists through exhibitions, artist talks, studio art classes, an international residency program, free public events, and professional development opportunities for artists. Outside its walls, the Art Center’s outreach programs in historically underserved neighborhoods bring the visual arts to Chicago youth, their teachers, and their families.

By developing socially adept programming that finds new ways to engage diverse audiences in the work of Chicago’s artists, the Art Center makes space for transparent interaction with art and the artistic process, inspiring creative exploration and encouraging exchange between audiences and artists.
