Artists’ Salon

The Artists' Salon at the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality seeks to showcase artists creating innovative work focusing, in diverse ways, and in diverse media, on gender and sexuality. The Artists' Salon provides the Center with a serious and thought-provoking exhibition gallery space where artwork is on display for students, faculty, and artists alike to enjoy and discuss together. The Artists' Salon exhibits work from both established artists, such as in the 2012 Alison Bechdel show “Fevered Archives,” and from up and coming artists in the Chicago area and elsewhere. By making the Center a place to interact with art on campus, we also hope to start conversations about feminist art and artmaking with members of the vital Chicago art community outside of campus, creating connections between students, faculty, and practitioners around issues of gender and sexuality.
