 Historical F(r)ictions: Imagining Public Archives of Contested Chicago(click on image to enlarge)

 

By critically engaging with archival materials and living testimonies, Nicole Marroquin and Andres L. Hernandez rewrite two narratives of citizen struggle in Chicago: student walkouts on the Lower West Side between 1968-1973, and resident-led protests at the Cabrini-Green housing development in spring 1981. The artists transform the galleries into a suite of active public archives and invite participants to interpret the recent past in order to re-imagine solutions to the crises of our historic present.
