Rebecca Keller’s numerous awards include two Fulbrights, an American Association of Museum International Fellowship and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and Illinois Arts Council. She has exhibited widely, including exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Hyde Park Art Center; the International Waldkunst Biennial; the Estonian National Art Museum, the Portland Art Museum; the International Museum of Surgical Science; the Tartu Art Museum; Elmhurst Art Museum and many others. In recent years her work has focused on history as a category and engine for art-making: her Excavating History projects use art and writing to expand and complicate the established narratives of historic sites. These “site-complicit’ interventions have occurred nationally and internationally, in locations as diverse an anatomy theater in Estonia to the Jane Addams Hull House Museum in Chicago. Her book about this work:  Excavating History; When Artists Take on Historic Sites was published in 2012 by Stepsister Press. A second edition came out in 2015.

Carris Adams’ (B. 1987, Dallas, TX., lives Chicago) creates large scale drawings and paintings to address the signs and signifiers within a landscape that suggests difference, otherness and value. Believing that within the landscape are signs (literal, symbolic and semiotic) pointing to race, gender, systemic inequalities and resilience- Adams’s peripatetic practice allows for these images, objects and language to become source material for the studio. Recent exhibition include Trapped in Acapulco, Logan Center Exhibitions, The University of Chicago (2015), Lands End, Logan Art Center Exhibitions (2015), and “Re”, South Dallas Cultural Center, Dallas TX (2014). Adams received her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin and her MFA from University of Chicago, Chicago IL.
