Villa Albertine presents a gallery talk in the exhibition Opening Passages: Photographers Respond to Chicago and Paris at the Chicago Cultural Center. Curators Carl Fuldner and Pascal Beausse (Centre national des arts plastiques) host a conversation between photographers Jonathan Michael Castillo, Gilberto Güiza-Rojas, Tonika Lewis Johnson, Karim Kal, and Marion Poussier focused on documentary strategies for representing communities.

Produced by Villa Albertine, Opening Passages is a city-wide, multi-site photographic exhibition featuring recent works by ten American and French artists who are interested in the dynamic social landscapes of Chicago and Paris. Selections from all participating artists are on view together downtown at the Chicago Cultural Center, while site-specific installations at 6018NorthBUILD Chicago, and Experimental Station highlight intersections between artists whose work resonates with similar themes or particular areas within each city.
