Amanda Williams is a previous CAB 2015 participant and this year she returns with a culmination of projects. Among these is her first solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. In her work she presents sculptures that extend from her formative photography work, using bricks and siding from the painted houses that have since been demolished. She highlights how demolition as a force of erasure and unmaking and the afterlife of building materials shape the lives of urban citizens. In her presentation, she will speak to the nature of her practice, working with raw material and how the history of a place plays into its adaptative use in the future.
FREE shuttle service from/back to the Chicago Cultural Center and a tour of the SC Johnson corporate headquarters are included in this special program. These Thursday trips to SC Johnson's corporate headquarters will include a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Research Tower and Administration Building; The SC Johnson Gallery: At Home with Frank Lloyd Wright; our award-winning Foster + Partners-designed Fortaleza Hall and time in The Lily Pad gift shop.
