Giselle Mira-Diaz: Rotten Fruit

February 8 - 28, 2024
Opening Reception: February 8, 5–7 p.m.

Giselle Mira-Diaz’s exhibition Rotten Fruit is an art research project that peels away at the surface to reveal the United Fruit Company's expansion into Central and South America; the work alludes to the complicated colonial history of those regions. Mira-Diaz utilizes archival materials to create a contemporary response combining photography, film, performance, and paper-making. Stuart Abelson's Graduate Research Fellowship from Columbia College Chicago enabled Mira-Diaz to travel to Costa Rica and Colombia over the summer of 2023.


Virtual Artist Talk: Saturday, February 24 at 1:00 p.m.
