Gallery 400 at University of Illinois at Chicago
Chicago, Illinois

To support the Chicago presentation at Gallery 400 of the exhibition Contemporary Ex-Votos: Devotion Beyond Medium, opening in January 2024. The exhibition sheds light on the understudied iconographic and ideological aspects of ex-votos, a type of retablo (small devotional painting) depicting miracles painted on tin and found materials. Demonstrating the important place of ex-votos in the history of the Americas, the exhibition also recontextualizes studies of contemporary devotion in Latin America and the US. A scholarly catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
