BANNER
100 YEARS OF PROTEST

11 AUGUST - 21 OCTOBER

This exhibition brings together two collections of banners separated by some 100 years and produced in two different continents: Suffrage banners from The Women’s Library collection and contemporary banners from the Protest Banner Lending Library, a contemporary project by American based artist Aram Han Sifuentes.

Each banner in the exhibition has been made by hand to express a political position in a succinct form.

Artist ( Description ): 

Aram Han Sifuentes is a fiber, social practice, and performance artist who works to claim spaces for immigrant and disenfranchised communities. Her work often revolves around skill sharing, specifically sewing techniques, to create multiethnic and intergenerational sewing circles, which become a place for empowerment, subversion and protest. Her work has been exhibited and performed at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum (Chicago, Illinois), Chicago Cultural Center (Chicago, Illinois), Pulitzer Arts Foundation (St. Louis, MO), Asian Arts Initiative (Philadelphia, PA), Chung Young Yang Embroidery Museum (Seoul, South Korea), Centro de Textiles del Mundo Maya (Chiapas, Mexico), and the Design Museum (London, UK).

Aram is currently an Artist in Residence at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation and a Sponsored Artist at High Concept Labs. She is a 2016 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow, a 2016 3Arts Awardee, and a 2017 Sustainable Arts Foundation Awardee. She earned her BA in Art and Latin American Studies from the University of California, Berkeley, and her MFA in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
