Michigan Avenue Galeries

Printing workshop by artists Nicole Marroquin and Andres L. Hernandez on February 25, 10am-6pm

By critically engaging with archival materials and living testimonies, Nicole Marroquin and Andres L. Hernandez rewrite two narratives of citizen struggle in Chicago: student walkouts on the Lower West Side between 1968-1973, and resident-led protests at the Cabrini-Green housing development in spring 1981. The artists transform the galleries into a suite of active public archives and invite participants to interpret the recent past in order to re-imagine solutions to the crises of our historic present.
