An art exhibition this weekend: Birdboxes and photography

YOU ARE INVITED to the exhibit “A Sum of Its Parts” that features select work by two distinguished Chicago artists, Phillip J. Capuano, and Eleftheria Lialios.

Capuano is primarily known as a sculptor, though also a documentary filmmaker and photographer.

Lialios, a Fulbright alumna who recently received the 2022 Fulbright Chicago Dee Sarelas Service Award, is a well-established photographer, filmmaker, image-maker, and educator. For over five decades, these artists have pushed the boundaries of their practices.

Utilizing their well-honed skills, both artists tempt and explore their mediums’ alchemistic qualities and nature, successfully shifting certain pre-established norms into unchartered territory.  

Known as innovators and warriors, their sensitivities of their visual languages, and their labor-intensive approaches stem from their remarkable life experiences and circumstances. Not surprisingly, they have continued uninterruptedly in devotion to their art making in the face of adversity and turmoil. This brief weekend presentation hopes to raise awareness of these artists’ historical importance and value. It is crucial to bolster their ability to continue building their lifework.
