To support research and development for an exhibition tentatively entitled Re-presenting: Developing Identity at Chicago’s 1893 Columbian World’s Fair. The project examines the fair as a platform for expressions of cultural identity and the ways it may have forged connections between Chicago and Mexican art communities. The grant supports a two-day research convening, two curatorial research trips to Mexico, and a Terra Foundation Research Fellow. The project is expected to lead to an exhibition as part of the Terra Foundation initiative Art Design Chicago.
