The Language Between Worlds

Hyde Park Art Center, the renowned non-profit hub for contemporary art located on Chicago’s vibrant South Side, announces a major new group exhibition, The Language

Between Worlds, featuring works by five artists that examine the racial inequality learned through

systems that create American society, on view July 16 – October 29, 2022. Curated by Art Center Director

of Exhibition and Residency Programs, Allison Peters Quinn, the exhibition includes artists Nyame Brown, Nicole Marroquin, Jessica Vaughn, and the Art Center’s former resident artists Chris Pappan (2019/20) and Bethany Collins (2016/17).

In this exhibition, the artists devise their own language of symbols, visual cues, and narrative structures that highlight the racial inequality woven into American society. Whether fact or folktale, the stories they choose to tell are revived through a modernist or conceptual approach and directly connect the past to the future, while challenging the author of history itself. 

The Language Between Worlds is located at Hyde Park Art Center, at 5020 South Cornell Avenue, a South Side hub for contemporary arts in Chicago. Exhibition admission is free and allows walk-ins. Masks are required to enter the building.
