EXPO CHICAGO | Featuring Nnenna Okore
September 27-30, 2018
Threewalls is excited to present Nnenna Okore, a current RaD Lab artist, for 2018 EXPO CHICAGO. Okore’s exhibition, “Guilty Pleasures,” highlights the effects of climate change. Her art beautifully encourages the viewer to connect and re-connect with the natural world by manipulating materials part of our everyday experience–paper, string, burlap and wire–into sculptural forms that often mimic forms in nature. For Okore’s presentation, she will incorporate some of these materials with conversations from social media, material waste from Chicago homes, and Okore’s own reflections on ecological changes to create a highly sensory multimedia experience for EXPO visitors.
