    Immersive Art Space LP presents Immersive Van Gogh

    Lighthouse ArtSpace Chicago, a new venue within Chicago’s recently renovated landmark Germania Club Building, will open Thursday, Feb. 11, 2021 with the U.S. premiere of the blockbuster art experience Immersive Van Gogh. Immersive Van Gogh is a fully immersive experience custom-designed for Old Town’s 14,000 sq. ft. historical Germania Club Building, offering a look into the mind of the world’s most iconic impressionist artist, the one and only Vincent Van Gogh. The fully immersive exhibition allows visitors to fully transport into Van Gogh’s most famous masterpieces such as Starry Night, Sunflowers, and The Bedroom of Arles, with large-scale projections that animate every inch of the architecture, along with music, storytelling, and the opportunity to lay down in a socially distant circle with a pillow to take it all in. This will be the US premiere of this exhibit by the world-renowned producers behind the famous Atelier des Lumières.

  • Cuts and Beats: Cecil McDonald, Jr.

    Hyde Park Art Center
    5020 S. Cornell Ave
    Chicago, IL 60615
    Cuts and Beats: Cecil McDonald, Jr.

    The exhibition of photography and installation work presents a collection of Cecil McDonald, Jr.’s most recent body of work birthed from his 2018 residency at the Art Center, which embodies photomontages to subvert the racist representation of Black artists from history. Through his art practice, McDonald explores the intersections of masculinity, kinship, and the artistic and intellectual pursuits of Black Americans, using photography, video, and text. Cuts and Beats, particularly, draws attention to the controlled conditions under which Black artists performed and built careers during the Vaudeville and Minstrel era. Using photomontage technique, McDonald combined manipulated historical images of Black artists publicized by the entertainment industry—vintage sheet music covers, theater advertisements, and artist publicity photographs—with contemporary photographs taken by the artist himself in dance clubs around Chicago. By blending generations, locations, and authorship, the artist wishes to subvert, not erase, the racist representations of Black musicians popularized in the late 1800s.

    Return: A New Virtual Art Exhibit

Anneasha Hogan, Veronica Ravichandran, Isabella Scott, & Alex Brightbill will return to our space to build upon their past work and weave a new story. Together these artists show us that just as there is no single story that depicts the experience of all survivors, all survivors contain multitudes of stories. Awakenings is an arts organization dedicated to making visible the artistic expression of survivors of sexual violence.
