EXPO Chicago 2024

April 11 - April 14, 2024

We are pleased to announce an Exposure booth presentation showcasing the work of Tura Oliveira at EXPO CHICAGO 2024.

Above:

Horsehair Worm Extraction, 2023, reclaimed fabric, poly fleece blanket with satin border, hand dyed linen and silk, cotton thread, vintage crystals, three termites cast from reclaimed iron, 75 x 61 in.

Oliveira’s current body of work centers intertwining sci-fi narratives in a queer, utopian future, using textiles and immersive installation to transform these narratives into an expansive and interconnected mythology for a future earth. Our booth at EXPO Chicago will blend Tura’s powerful textile work with new works on paper and sculptures.

Tura Oliveira is an interdisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, New York.
