  3. Rhona Hoffman Gallery

    Specializing in art that is conceptually, formally, or socio-politically based, Rhona Hoffman Gallery is showing the work of Susan Hefuna this spring. 

    Born in Cairo and raised in Egypt and Germany, Hefuna discusses her personal experience living between the two cultures, through symbolism and visual metaphors in her work. Coalescing her interests in video, performance, and drawing, Notations, her second show at the space, highlights her longstanding fascination with maps, networks, architectural forms, and structural and cultural codes. 

    If you’re in Chicago this Spring, don’t miss Notations at Rhona Hoffman Gallery, April 12- May 31, 2014.
