Bai Bautista-Buckingham and James Ross: Trust Visions

Bai Bautista-Buckingham and James Ross: Trust Visions
April 3–September 20, 2023
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 6, 57 p.m.

Note: All visitors must RSVP via Eventbrite for entry to the exhibition during open hours. 

Trust Visions depicts the delirious optimism and haunting paranoia of being caught in delusions of grandeur. The lines that define this harsh reality soften and blur until all that’s left is blind confidence, a million good bad ideas, invincibility, a message from God, and a Birkin with a can of Red Bull and three lip glosses inside.

Bai Bautista-Buckingham and James Ross are recipients of the Pougialis Fine Art award which is a yearly competition sponsored by the Art and Design department that offers promising fine art students at Columbia College Chicago an opportunity to study as an apprentice with an established artist of national and international standing for one semester, a cash award, and a two-person exhibition at The Arcade.
