Candida Alvarez: Here

Sat 29 Apr 2017 - Sun 6 Aug 2017

The first major institutional exhibition of the work of Chicago-based painter Candida Alvarez.

Guest curated by Terry Myers, this first major institutional exhibition of the work of Chicago-based artist Candida Alvarez will focus on the artist’s painting from 1975 to the present. Born in Brooklyn and based in Chicago since 1998, Alvarez has been involved with both abstraction and representation in her work for more than 30 years. Emerging from a home life that immersed her in the traditions of her parents’ birthplace in Puerto Rico, Alvarez incorporated narrative and ritual into her work from the outset.

The exhibit runs from April 29-August 6 as part of the city's Year of Public Art

Conversations with Alvarez on the following dates:
Saturday, April 29, 2-4pm
Claudia Cassidy Theatre, 2nd Floor North
