Christina Ramberg, widely regarded as a central figure in the history of contemporary art in Chicago, will open her first retrospective exhibition of drawings at Gallery 400. Selected writings and paintings will accompany the exhibit, providing insight into the artistic themes she draws on, particularly for those works that have never before been researched, exhibited, chronicled or documented.


Opening reception

4 - 7 p.m.

Ramberg's work emphasizes the rise and empowerment of the feminist movement speaking to the current perceptions of gender identity and objectification of the female body.

"Ramberg reveals a wide range of visual influences," said Karen Indeck, director of Gallery 400. "Her work reflects the immediate cultural implications of mass, popular vernacular, and individual representations of feminity and the body. She is undoubtly an artist of continuing relevance."

The exhibit runs from May 1 - June 10. The gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Saturday, noon - 4 p.m. Direct exhibit questions to Karen Indeck, (312) 996-6114.
