Fantásticolismo: Curated by Cristobal Alday
Mana Contemporary, Chicago IL
Fantásticolismo, a group show featuring works by Janhavi Khemka, Yae Jee Min, José Santiago Perez, Roderick Sawyer, Hope Wang, and Payton Harris-Woodard, curated by Cristobal Alday. For this exhibition, Alday thinks through the relationship between the visual arts and poetry by juxtaposing the artists’ works with written proses as a curatorial response.
the present contradicts my pasts
What does this treachery hold?
found in the crevices and spaces
intertwined by histories of vibrancy
Filling up faster with each moment,
I stumble over the intricacies of myself
