Chicago Works: Deborah Stratman Recommended Tickets Available Agenda Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: 7/17-12/6

Chicagoan Deborah Stratman's solo exhibition is centered on the artist’s celebrated film The Illinois Parables, which chronicles the history of the region through 11 chapters addressing everything from the "resettlement" of the Cherokee people, to the invention of the nuclear reactor at the University of Chicago, to the deadly police raid of Chicago’s Black Panther headquarters. For this exhibition, Stratman created an extension of the film in the form of a recreation of Studs Terkel’s WFMT radio booth and an accompanying audio program of the oral historian's interviews.
