Being Here | 2018
For Being Here, our inaugural exhibition, we partnered with the Chicago Artists Coalition to curate an exciting group of contemporary artists with diverse backgrounds and studio practices. The ten artists on display all live and work in neighborhoods throughout Chicago. By bringing these artworks together, this exhibition demonstrates an expansive range of color, form, technique, and texture. From layered photographs and graphic collages, to woven fabric and re-staged still lifes, Being Here offers a vivid reflection of the complexity, creative energy, and constant motion of Chicago.
During the public viewing of Being Here our tenants were given the opportunity to vote for one artwork from Being Here to join Willis Tower’s permanent collection. Golden Harvest was selected and is currently on view in Tower House.
