VIRTUAL TOUR: A Tale of Today: Nate Young and Mika Horibuchi (+Catalogue)
Virtually experience each gallery in the exhibition as Nate Young and Mika Horibuchi share the stories behind the works created specifically for the historically and architecturally significant space.
Young has created installations that draw 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 first two-thirds of the twentieth century. The skillful woodwork he utilizes in his sculpture work recalls the same craftsmanship used to build the Nickerson Mansion.
Horibuchi addresses illusions and perceptions in her paintings and installations that explore the building’s use as both a former home and a museum. She blurs the lines between truth and fiction by using the painting technique of trompe-l’oeil to pose questions regarding authorship and the construction of historical narratives.
