1 hour 1 min ago The Art Institute of Chicago CLOSING SUNDAY—Rodney McMillian: a great society
Grappling with the complexities of class, race, and place in America, Rodney McMillian employs elements of performance, public speaking, oral history—and his interest in the science fiction genre—to expose the social and psychological consequences of economic inequality and endemic racism. While his work engages the often stark realities of history and contemporary culture, it is motivated by the potential for alternative realities and future transformation.

These are the words of Tarsila do Amaral, one of the leaders behind Anthropophagy, a national art movement that arose in 1920s Brazil with the goal of “cannibalizing” aspects of European modern art in order to make a new, more distinctly indigenous style. #5WomenArtists
