Eclipsing: the politics of night, the politics of light
January 26 – March 16, 2018
Challenging assumptions of darkness, Eclipsing: the politics of night, the politics of light was a group exhibition that implicated the eclipse as a metaphor, exploring conversations of power, landscape, language, space and visibility. Featuring artists Carris Adams, Bethany Collins, Cream Co., Terrell Davis, Angela Davis Fegan, Sabrina Granados, Deana Lawson, Kelly Lloyd, Shala Miller and Liz Mputu.
This exhibition was a program of the Eclipsing Festival that converged around the first lunar eclipse of January, 2018. The festival offered a constellation of events, experiences, and exhibitions including a workshop mini-series, a performance festival, a vegan marketplace, a performative lecture, and a film/video screening. Eclipsing programs were hosted by Chicago art organizations Arts and Public Life, Links Hall, and Threewalls.
