EXPO CHICAGO 2024: Booth 344 | Navy Pier

April 11 - 14, 2024 

For EXPO CHICAGO 2024, Catharine Clark Gallery presents the work of Sandow Birk, Joel Daniel Phillips, Stephanie Syjuco, and Marie Watt. Their artworks delve into American history, leveraging diverse mediums and approaches to dissect and reframe the visual archives of the past.

With varied approaches and media, the selected works reflect on the historical record and question what it means to be an American, through expansive artistic vocabulary: drawing and gravure for Birk, painting for Phillips, photography and video for Syjuco, and textile and beading for Watt. Through their respective mediums and rigorous practices, the artists invite conversation about truth-telling, the complexities of American identity, visibility/invisibility, and the accessibility of historical narratives. The works on view serve as a dynamic platform for contemplation and engagement with the multifaceted dimensions of our collective narratives.
