Ziccy Delamarter: My Grotesque Comforts

June 13 - September 12, 2024
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 13, 4-6 p.m.
Closing Reception: Thursday, September 12, 5-7 p.m.

My Grotesque Comforts explores the intersections of queer identity and found specimens through the work of Ziccy Delamarter. The artist delves into the darker, more surreal aspects of their queer identity and bodily autonomy through illustrations of themself and the grotesque subjects they find. It is a deep and personal exploration of the artist’s desires and unique experiences with selfhood through a thought-provoking and visually striking collection of works.

This show was made possible in part by the Albert P. Weisman Grant. The Albert P. Weisman Award supports advanced undergraduate and graduate students in completing a substantial media-based project. Established in 1974, it is named after Al Weisman, a journalist, publicist, teacher, mentor, and trustee of Columbia College Chicago.
