Edra Soto is a Chicago-based artist, educator, curator, and co-director of the artist-run outdoor project space THE FRANKLIN.
Soto is interested in understanding the world and creating work relevant to that reality. She tends to draw upon childhood memories and religious upbringing for inspiration, as they are strongly embedded in the humanity of her expression. They also explore ideas of transformation through social engagements. She aims to create a space of reflection by bringing together a rich environment of images and shapes that were made in a simple and basic manner.
Open critiques will be guided by visiting artist Edra Soto to students who register in advance through Mutlicultural Affairs, at Maffai@saic.edu. These critiques are open to artists at all levels. Participants can also join the conversation without presenting work.
