Hey everyone! The University of Chicago’s SMART Museum of Art is bringing you an opportunity to expand your knowledge of multicultural art! Their latest exhibition, The Sahmat Collective: Art and Activism in India Since 1989, profiles Sahmat as the platform to promote artistic freedom and celebrate secular values.
Established in response to the murder of Safdar Hashmi, a playwright, actor, and activist, the collective has offered artists with a chance to display their powerful works while battling intolerance and defending freedom of expression. The projects seek to unite the various religious, political, and social divides in India through art while taking a stand against communalism in public life. With a little help from U. Chicago, you have the opportunity to check out these inspiring pieces between February 14th and June 9th.
For profiles of the participating artists, please see the exhibition’s webpage. Don’t miss your chance to check out this awesome exhibition!
Krista Hoefle’s “Respawn,” featured as part of The Almost Metal Collective.
Endeavoring to encompass a broad range of art and design, Columbia College’s A+D Gallery presents engaging work by emerging and established artists that promote understanding about the artistic process and its interaction with the world.
The A+D Gallery’s current exhibition, The Almost Metal Collective, will remain open until February 16. Artists Krista Hoefle, Jason Lahr, Sheilah Wilson, and Rudy Shephered join local shops of the Impractical Labor in Service of the Speculative Arts to present a visual representation of their views, ideas, and opinions. In their attempt to make sense of their personal identities, the artists look at the cultural and social influences that continuously shape their experience of the world.
Investigating economic, commercial, and aesthetic value, Market Value: Examining Wealth and Worth opens February 28 with a reception from 5 PM to 8 PM.

The A+D Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11AM to 5PM with extended hours from 11AM to 8PM on Thursdays. For more information about the gallery and its location, click here.
