Saturday, October 28th at 6pm | RSVP 

Join us for a conversation between our current artist in residence Noritaka Minami and the Chicago-based artist Hui-min Tsen. They will discuss their recent projects that deal with the built environment and how history, politics, and utopianism are explored to their examinations of spaces. Learn More about Noritaka: HERE.

Hui-min Tsen

Hui-min Tsen's work explores the act of exploration itself with an emphasis on the individual’s everyday relationship with place, wonder, and the unknown. Through a series of projects ranging from boat-building to walking tours, she has sought to cross the distance between here and over there by reaching for the myth and mystery present in our everyday landscape. She received a BFA from Tisch School of the Arts, and an MFA in photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is an active member of the Chicago arts community, showing and publishing with Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago Artists Coalition, MDW Fair, and Sector 2337, among others. Jason Foumberg placed her project "On the Trail of a Disorderly Future; A Chicago Pedway Tour" on his top ten list of public art in NewCity and the accompanying guidebook was published by Green Lantern Press in 2013.  She currently teaches photography at Wright College and Loyola University.
