Organized by Hyde Park Art Center in partnership with the Terra Foundation for American Art, this mini exhibition features projects by four of Chicago’s artist-run platforms that engage critical dialogue around Chicago neighborhoods through art interventions in public space. The featured platforms, in ℅ Black women, Roman Susan, Contra Corriente, and Space Shift Collective, are all recipients of the Art Center’s Artists Run Chicago Fund, a regranting initiative that gives unrestricted financial support to the city’s diverse artist-run platforms. Fifteen selected platforms received additional funding provided by the Terra Foundation for American Art’s Art Design Chicago initiative, to create new programs contributing to a citywide collaboration that aims to build new understandings of Chicago through the lens of its art and design legacy. The projects exhibited will continue to take place in Chicago neighborhoods through 2024.
