“The Past Is Still With Us” Opening Fri. May 26, 6-9pm
The exhibition “The Past is Still With Us” is a new installation by Chicago-based artist Pauline Kochanski. The installation is based on Ms. Kochanski’s interest in exploring ways to aesthetically express her response to her family’s history of the European Holocaust of World War II. “The experience of my parents has haunted me and I have been exploring ways to express my emotional response.”
This installation breaks new ground for the artist, by inviting viewers to connect to the exhibition as participants. Viewers are encouraged to interact and touch materials in the exhibition. Viewers become participants.
Opening: Friday May 26 from 6-9pm
Exhibition dates: May 24 – June 17, 2017
