Curator-led Tour

February 25 @ 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Join Allison Peters Quinn for a mid-day tour of Health Club, the current exhibition that features artwork by Nelly Agassi, Yane Calovski & Hristina Ivanoska, Balas & Wax (Susy Bielak and Fred Schmalz), Andrew Schachman for Fieldwork, Charo Garaigorta, Faheem Majeed, Kevin Miyaki, and Bridget O’Gorman. These artists observe the interdependence of human wellness on civic space by addressing certain places (like parks, museums, hotels) created to generate compassion, rejuvenation, or personal growth.  All of the works also address the paradox of such places by highlighting historical moments of control, restriction, or violence, which raises questions about the every day sites we choose to visit.

Quinn is the Director of Exhibition & Residency Programs at Hyde Park Art Center, where she has curated exhibitions, and produced symposiums, performances and publications since 2004.  She has organized significant exhibitions for emerging and established artists such as Cándida Alvarez, Theaster Gates, Stockyard Institute, and Bibiana Suárez.  She has served on national jury competitions, grant review committees and critique panels and taught curatorial seminars at The University of Chicago Graham School and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Allison studied an MA at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, and a BA in Art History and English at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
