Chicago Cultural Center Hosts Exhibitions by Jane Regan and Marcos Raya


Weightless: Photographs by Jane Regan

Through April 23, 2000

Chicago photographer Jane Regan employs a wide variety of cameras to capture the magic of flying in these formal portraits of airplane wings as seen from inside the cabin. Making use of natural distortion arising from the weird perspectives, these formal treatments have an eerie quality occasionally enhanced by digital manipulation.

Marcos Raya: The Machine and Other Personajes

February 19 - April 30, 2000

The exhibition features several aspects of Marcos Raya's painting, collage and assemblage works. Raya, one of the early Chicano muralists to emerge in Chicago during the 1970s and '80s, developed an idiosyncratic style that reflects both his Mexican Heritage and Modernist ideas. Using traditional Mexican imagery and motifs, Raya continues to explore new avenues of image making, combining forms such as Mexican ofrenda with Dada assemblage techniques. In particular, the exhibition presents one of his major ongoing themes -- the machine. Raya views machines in particular, and modern technology in general, as an evolutionary idea with counter-revolutionary implications, yet his often whimsical and sardonic works always have self-mocking and autobiographical references.
