About the Folded Map exhibition
Tonika Lewis Johnson’s ongoing Folded Map project connects residents who live at corresponding addresses in the North and South Side neighborhoods of Chicago. By documenting architectural aspects of the neighborhoods and conversations between residents, Lewis Johnson demonstrates how a city of renowned institutions and robust tourism is also a city that struggles with issues of racial inequality and segregation. This exhibition was organized in partnership with Loyola University’s Center for Urban Research & Learning and the Public History Program.
The exhibition runs at LUMA until October 20, 2018. Check out the museum's current exhibitions.
