Next Chapter members are invited to join us for "Designing the Chicago Avant-Garde Identity," a free public program at the Newberry. In addition to the talk, members will receive a private tour of the Chicago Avant-Garde exhibition and a complimentary copy of the exhibition catalog.
Chicago Avant-Garde tells the story of five Chicago women who took radical risks in their lives and their art, transforming their city into a hub of avant-garde experimentation. Come hear printmaker Ben Blount and artists Nadine Nakanishi and utcher of Sonnenzimmer discuss how the catalog they created for the exhibition illuminates Chicago’s avant-garde dancers, writers, and artists, past and present.
Sonnenzimmer and Blount are producing a special edition print for this program that will be available to all visitors as a takeaway.
