Where the Future Came From
November 1, 2018 - February 15, 2019

Where the Future Came From focuses on the role of feminist artist-run activities in Chicago from the late 19th century to the present. Chicago has a deep history of artist-run activities. These projects are self-propelled programs that have been the lifeblood of Chicago’s contemporary art scene. In fact, many nationally and internationally recognized artists cut their teeth in such spaces. Where the Future Came From seeks to contextualize the role of feminism within that history and expand beyond work previously explored. This program consists of a symposium, an exhibition that is an open participatory research lab, and a series of programs, all of which will be documented through a publication.

Where the Future Came From is organized and curated by Meg Duguid, Director of Exhibitions for Columbia College Chicago’s Department of Exhibitions, Performance, and Student Spaces (DEPS). This project is part of Art Design Chicago, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art exploring Chicago’s art and design legacy, with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation. Where the Future Came From is funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art and partially funded by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
