Installations + Exhibitions > Chicago Works: Museum of Contemporary Art

For my first solo museum exhibition, I presented new bodies of work that used sculpture and photography to respond to Chicago's changing urban environment. I transformed architectural remnants into immersive sculptures that draw attention to the ways context dramatically informs the value of material, and by extension, the value of cities. For me, architecture and its fragments serve as a microcosm for larger social issues, and the artist invites viewers to consider the social, political, and racial narratives that support the devaluation of certain neighborhoods, such as Englewood on Chicago’s South Side. Despite the hyper local focus of my work, the issues raised are applicable to nearly every contemporary urban space. My work encourages broad thinking about what the form of a house, a street, or a neighborhood says about its value to the people who live there, as well as to the larger society in which it exists.
