¡Sí, Se Puede! at the Glass Curtain Gallery

¡Sí, Se Puede! is on view at the Glass Curtain Gallery until November 4, 2017. The show features the work of Victor Alemán, William Estrada, Ian Kerstetter, Nicole Marroquin, Victoria Martinez, Gloria “Gloe” Talamantes, with offsite murals by Hector Duarte and Sam Kirk. Each of the artists took engaging approaches to working with documents from the UFW archives and I caught up with Meg Duguid, curator of the exhibition and Director of Exhibitions at Columbia College, to talk about how this manifested in each of the different pieces.

Here, There and Everywhere: Clutch Gallery

“Clutch Gallery is a year long curatorial project located in my purse. I have had to pare down to carrying the basic necessities to eek out this 25 square inch white cube that is dedicating to exhibiting contemporary art of all media.

Clutch Gallery has regular appearances throughout Chicago–anywhere from CTA Transits, bike routes throughout the city, grocery stores, office spaces to national conferences. Director Meg Duguid welcomes artists and curators to propose artists and projects to have in Clutch Gallery–recently Shannon Stratton of Threewalls had a hand in an exhibition at Clutch. I first ran across Clutch as it made an appearance at the TAAC Open Dialogue Conference in August 2010. See more photos of Clutch Gallery HERE.
