Christina Quarles
Apr 4
Aug 30

Los Angeles-based artist Christina Quarles paints colorful, evocative scenes of ambiguous figures whose limbs, torsos, and faces merge with familiar domestic objects and abstract planes and surfaces. The surreal, morphing bodies in her paintings are subject to the weight and gravity of the physical world, as well as other bodies and the pleasures and pressures of the social realm. Quarles’s work explores the universal experience of existing within a body, as well as the ways race, gender, and sexuality intersect to form complex identities. The most comprehensive presentation of her work to date, the exhibition brings together a selection of Quarles’s work along with a new, large-scale commission that explores illusions and histories of painting.

General admission $15 adults/$8 students, teachers, seniors/Free if 18 and under/IL residents are free on Tuesdays.

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday – 10:00 am – 5:00 pm – Tuesday, Friday – 10:00 am – 9:00 pm – Saturday, Sunday – 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
