Between You and Me artist John Preus

On view through February 28, 2021

John Preus, a trained artist and furniture maker, uses material from demolished Chicago Public Schools to create cubes and stoops. The objects are meant to start conversations among gallery visitors and mimic moments of community that occur on a stoop between someone sitting and passersby. Preus had assistance from former Chicago Public Schools students in making these objects. Explore Between You and Me at JMKAC or virtually to see the work of Preus and other artists whose work demonstrates care in their communities.

Inscriptions of an Immense Theatre and museum acquisition practices

How did museums acquire the artwork and objects in their collections? That’s one of the topics explored in Inscriptions of an Immense Theatre, Ailbhe Ní Bhriain’s immersive film on view through November 1 in JMKAC’s Projector Room. The film is set in three locations: the British Museum, a center for asylum seekers, and finally, a quarry. Moving through all three locations, the film explores museum practices, Western imperialism, and loss. In this way, the film is related to “Tell Museums to Replace Stolen Artifacts,” an article by Ebony Bellamy posted on Anti-Racism Daily. To see the film, make a reservation to visit JMKAC. For more info, download the handout for this film, which is part of our On Being Here (and There) exhibition series.
