The Chicago Artists Coalition is pleased to present You will be the archivist of your desires, a HATCH Projects exhibition featuring new works by Brittney Leeanne Williams, Frances Lightbound, Marissa Chris Zain Neuman, Meg Leary, Pooja Pittie, and Sydney Shavers. This exhibition will take place off-site and is generously hosted by the Chicago Art Deparment (1932 S. Halsted #100, Chicago).
In her text “Queer Feelings” feminist philosopher Sara Ahmed poses the question “How does it feel to inhabit a body that fails to reproduce an ideal?” The six, female-identified artists in You will be the archivist of your desires present work that peels at the edges of our understandings of what it means to be a contemporary female artist, each of them searching for new ways of understanding themselves in the din of countering narratives. All working from the place of the anti-monolith, these artists explore the frustrations of the built environment which has repressed feminine input.
You will be the archivist of your desires is curated by Ariel Gentalen.
