Drawings, paintings, installations and a social media project by Chicago artist Paula Henderson will explore the constraints of social constructs and art.

Ms. Henderson’s exhibit “Social Regard” will be on display from Jan. 11 to Feb. 13 at Northwestern University’s Dittmar Memorial Gallery, located at Norris University Center, 1999 Campus Drive on the Evanston campus. “Social Regard” is comprised of two series of works.

The first series explores gender-specific social constructs, specifically the commercial and cultural representations of women, which become internalized and can affect identity and self-worth.  

This social inquiry morphs into artistic inquiry in the series “Groundwork(s)” as the artist focuses on prosaic, schematic patterns of of visual appeal that operate simultaneously as social signifiers.

Connecting the series is the artist’s interest in social dynamics and art history.

Ms. Henderson’s work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and she has received an NEA fellowship and a grant from the Illinois Arts Council. Ms. Henderson teaches at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Dittmar Gallery admission is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Mondays through Sundays, except when a new exhibition is being mounted.
