Architecture Adjunct Associate Professor Amanda Williams Featured In “New Dreams in Jay-Z Minor” Exhibit

Amanda Williams, "Bring ‘em On Home," 2012

Architecture Adjunct Associate Professor Amanda Williams will be featured in the new Dreams in Jay-Z Minor exhibition at the Blanc Gallery as part of a series of exhibitions for Chicago Artists Month. Williams and fellow Chicago artist Krista Franklin drew on a series of mutually recurring dreams as inspiration for their work.

The exhibit explores notions around dream states, hyper-reality, upward mobility, hopes and aspirations of African Diasporic peoples, black opulence, black excellence, and excess.

Using a variety of mediums, from paintings, handmade paper, print, altered books and collage, Dreams in Jay-Z Minor is a visual metaphorical play of installation, 2D, and 3D works.
