EDRA SOTO                     
I IN THE SKY           
December 2, 2015 - February 12, 2016

Opening Performances and Public Receptions
Wednesday, December 2, 2015 from 12:00 - 1:00 pm & 5:00 - 6:00 pm

The President’s Gallery at Harold Washington College presents I IN THE SKY, a solo exhibition by Chicago-based artist Edra Soto. 
Edra Soto's exhibition I IN THE SKY is an experimental installation that challenges the structural procedures presumed for gallery display.  Complementary visual and sonorous experiences will unfold in front of the audience during the opening receptions as the show's installation arrives via performative gestures.  Soto will create all new work that picks up and riffs on projects from her artistic oeuvre - for example, depicting a timeline that features mainstream cultural characters influential to her upbringing in Puerto Rico; creating overlapping sounds of laughter, instrumental sounds, and live actions; or covering the existing institutional furniture in colorfully patterned and adorned textiles.  The artist's goal for this show is to create a clashing, cacophonous space that embodies her I while distancing itself into the Sky.
