"Micah McCoy: Minor Prophet" Exhibition

"Minor Prophet," loosely based on the Judeo-Christian story of Job, witnesses a family faced with an existential crisis in a chillingly desperate landscape. This series blurs the line between traditional documentary and the fictional, leveraging the illusion of photographic truth to allow the individual characters in the narrative to function as surrogates in mythmaking.

Calumet in Dub Exhibition

"Calumet in Dub" consists of an 8-channel speaker installation resulting from Norman W. Long’s research-based work delving into the ecology and soundscapes of the Southeast Side of Chicago along the Calumet and Little Calumet River area.
