New Narratives: Contemporary Art From India

We stumbled off the Megabus and into Chicago at 5:30 in the morning, too early for anything but blueberries by the lake. Later we slipped into the Chicago Cultural Center and found this fantastic show.
Kevin Nance of the Sun Times has some good things to say.

Unfortunately we missed the Jeff Wall show at the Art Institute, maybe next time.

Here are some of the artists featured at the Cultural Center. I highly recommend going.

Shilpa Gupta's interactive installation kept me silently captivated for many minutes

Megabus to Chicago

The reading was wonderful, Chicago was a blast, unfortunately we didn't get to see much work, as you can see I only have photos of millennium park. We did however get to see a fantastic show of contemporary Indian art at the Cultural Center (photos soon) as well as some old friends and plan on a quick return to check out schools.

Speaking of Chicago, We're off on a trip to revisit some pieces of the past and some things new. Also a reading from my friend Jordan Stempleman.
