WCA CHICAGO EVENTS 2022

Our theme celebrates our strengths and accomplishments and explores how we are moving forward to embrace new agendas and support emerging voices

WCA National Exhibition
Occupy the Moment, Intersect History with Impact
Bridgeport Art Center, Chicago, IL
January 21 to February 25, 2022
Reception: Friday, February 19 from 7-10 pm

Juror: Dr. Maura Reilly
In the last half century, the art historical canon has been uprooted and redefined. The canon was erected on categorized colonial narratives and invented racial rankings. The WCA has cast aside this “white male gaze” to define our own vision.

This National WCA 50th Anniversary exhibition features works that address this moment of 2022. Artists were encouraged to interpret the theme broadly, considering the multiple paths of how we arrived here and what we envision moving forward. We encouraged art that explored the ways that our identities and expressions intersect with such factors as environment, culture, time, and location. Artwork submissions were open to any approach and form, subjects in range from the historic precedents set by political activism, to personal transformation, social engagement and beyond.
