current show recommended by timeoutchicago
Polvo’s closure last December was a sad loss for Pilsen’s gallery scene. But cofounder Miguel Cortez says antena, his new project space around the corner, should pick up where Polvo—which took its name from the Spanish word for dust—left off. In antena’s first show (“What makes a man start fires?”) Noelle Mason uses cultural phenomena such as Superman’s X-ray vision to investigate America’s violent and security-obsessed culture. It runs through May 24.
