TEMPO. MEMORIA: Daring to Dream Again is a project curated by Sergio Gomez. Tempo Memoria presents a riveting exhibition exploring the themes of TIME and MEMORY from a variety of world perspectives. From cultural, political, psychological, religious, or personal view points, curator Gomez invited a selective group of international artists to visually articulate and interpret to their discretion ideas of time passing, memory, dreams and our personal perceptions on such concepts. The exhibition featured twenty-five extraordinary visual artists representing the United States (Chicago, Illinois, New York City, Miami, Florida), Mexico, Korea, Philippines, Peru, Germany and Iran.

We did the Chicago deep dish pizza, the bean, and went to the Art Institute.Read More
