Opening Reception: Traversing the Past

Opening Reception: Traversing the Past

 Please join us for the opening reception of Traversing the Past: Adam Golfer, Diana Matar, Hrvoje Slovenc , a new exhibition at the MoCP that presents the work of three artists who trace their family stories to histories of political turmoil, violence, and displacement. In using personal experiences as starting points, the artists transform the autobiographical into a multivalent lens through which to view a subject that cannot be pinned to a single narrative. 

Exhibiting artists Adam Golfer and Hrvoje Slovenc will engage in conversation with Erin McCarthy, associate professor of history at Columbia College Chicago at 6:30 in the MoCP Print Study Room.
