At Navy Pier from September 13-17, 2017

Yvette Mayorga is part of The Chicago Artists Coalition’s (CAC) BOLT Residency which is a highly competitive, juried, one-year artist studio program.

CAC presents the BOLT Artist-in-Residence Yvette Mayorga, whose work is informed by the politics of the U.S./Mexico border, the events that happen on it, and the transnational narratives that arise after crossing it. In her installation-based work, Mayorga tackles issues of race, identity, gender, and Latin stereotypes using visual tropes of celebration. CAC's exhibiting artist, Yvette Mayorga was selected by Janine Mileaf, Director of The Arts Club of Chicago.

The Special Exhibitions program features select regional, national, and international non-profit institutions, museums, and organizations to be included on the main floor of the exposition. EXPO CHICAGO’s Special Exhibitions offer unique, high-quality installations, joining 135 leading galleries from around the world featured throughout Navy Pier’s iconic Festival Hall. Complementing the surrounding elements of the fair, this program illustrates and preserves the important relationship between contemporary and modern art and non-profit organizations.
