How does language structure our world? Who gets to be inside or outside a language? What would it mean to invent a new mode of communication? And what social conditions make creating a new language necessary? Chicago artist Caroline Kent (American, b. 1975) explores these questions through paintings, drawings, sculpture, and performance works that speak in an abstract visual vocabulary she developed over years of practice.

The exhibition consists of an immersive installation titled Victoria/Veronica: Making Room, which brings together paintings, sculptures, sound, and architectural interventions. Victoria and Veronica are a fictional set of identical twins who communicate telepathically across two distinct environments: a writing room and a reading lounge. While physically distanced, the twins are united by the secret language they share. In this Chicago Works exhibition, Kent encourages visitors to engage with her invented language of abstraction—one that defies easy interpretation or translation.

Chicago Works: Caroline Kent is organized by Jadine Collingwood, Assistant Curator. It is presented in the Sternberg and Rabin galleries on the museum’s third floor.
