Artist Patrick Eugène and Lauren Tate Baeza — the Fred and Rita Richman Curator of African Art at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art — will discuss Eugène’s newest body of work created for “50 lbs.”
The Mariane Ibrahim Gallery is located in West Town, Chicago’s gallery district. It’s in the same building as the Monique Meloche Gallery, which will be showcasing works by Maia Cruz Palileo through May 26. Eugène and Palileo’s exhibitions could not be more perfectly timed and aligned. In her multimedium works, Palileo explores themes of migration and assimilation tied to her Filipino heritage.
Both galleries are just a few minutes from the West Town Brewing District, where you can grab an original brew at On Tour Brewing’s gorgeous taproom. If beer’s not your thing, you can head over to The Center of Order and Experimentation for a Monday Coffee Co. beverage and a deeply-curated selection of household curiosities and delights. The Center is open until 3 p.m. on weekends.
