Bisa Butler: Portraits
Art Institute of Chicago

Bisa Butler’s portrait quilts vividly capture personal and historical narratives of Black life. She strategically uses textiles to interrogate the historical marginalization of her subjects while using scale and subtle detail to convey her subjects’ complex individuality. Bisa Butler: Portraits is the first solo museum exhibition of the artist’s work and will include over 20 portraits.
