For Each Otherhighlights the ways a group of Chicago-based artists and collectives consider care in their work and in the contexts they create for their work. In the included artworks and projects, care is an active, participatory process.
UIC alumni Jon Aldrich(BFA '19), Edith Mendez(BFAAE '20), Jessa Mendiola(BFA '19), Nydia Mendiola(BFA '19), Angelica Mendoza(BFAAE '21), and Eric Perez(BFA '19), as the collective Real Fake Artists, Inc., have recreated for the exhibition their fall 2019 course final project, a proposal—in cardboard sculpture form—for a student lounge in Art & Exhibition Hall.
Latham Zearfoss(MFA '11) created a new meditative video installation for the exhibition. Liz McCarthy(MFA '17) in a partnership with the ceramic studio she founded, GnarWare Workshop, and artist Lan Tuazon, is running the Third Empty Bowls Fundraiser in the exhibition. Hand-thrown ceramic bowls are for sale in the show; all sales provide direct support to the Pilsen Food Pantry, Nita’s Love Train, and McKinley Park Mutual Aid.
Other artists and collectives include Kennedy Healyand Marley Molkentin, Public Media Institute(of which alumnus Nick Wylie, MFA '10), The Love Fridge Chicago(of which Eric Von Haynes, adjunct faculty in the School of Design is a part), and the UIC Disability Cultural Center Community Care Cohort.
