The exhibition at the gallery will feature Beta, a site-specific installation that questions the standardized elementary education programs that have been implemented since Indonesia’s independence from Japanese occupation in 1945.




Edie Fake

Begins June 5 

Western Exhibitions

Edie Fake’s paintings start as self-portraits, and from there, they make a break for it, referencing elements of the trans and non-binary body through pattern, color and architectural metaphor. His precise, intimately scaled, gouache-and-ink paintings on panel are structured around the physical aspects of transition and adaptation as well as mental and sexual health.

Dorothy Graden: Liminal Spaces

Begins June 5 

Evanston Art Center

Dorothy Graden is a contemporary artist whose art is inspired by Ancient Visions, prehistoric art of the Americas.

For over 30 years she has been traveling through the American west to photograph and draw prehistoric rock art.




Modernist Strategies: Highlights from the WPA

Begins June 5

Krannert Art Museum, University of Illinois

From 1935 to 1943, the Works Progress Administration (WPA) sponsored the Federal Art Project, which employed as many as 10,000 artists during the Great Depression. In exchange for a modest weekly wage, artists produced paintings, sculptures, prints, and other works to be distributed to federal buildings and other public institutions. The University of Illinois received an extensive cache of works, which were transferred to Krannert Art Museum upon its founding in 1961.
