The second exhibition in the Driehaus Museum’s initiative to bring contemporary art into the Gilded Age era Nickerson Mansion focuses on two Chicago-based artists: Nate Young and Mika Horibuchi, whose works engage our expectations of the 1883 building by responding to its complex history. Both artists have created newly commissioned artistic additions that consider the interiors and architecture of the building, questioning mainstream historical narratives and inviting the opportunity to reflect on the history of a place from a diversity of perspectives. Young, a sculptor, has created an installation that draws on his great-grandfather’s journey to Chicago, which took place during the Great Migration, when many African Americans moved from the rural South to the North in the twentieth century. A multi-media artist, Horibuchi addresses faulty perceptions in her work, and her project at the Driehaus centers on creating a series of paintings that explores the building’s use first as a former home and second as a museum. The resulting catalog features photographs of the installation in the Museum, housed in Chicago’s Nickerson Mansion, alongside contributions from Shannon Stratton and Romi Crawford.
