Paige Taul | EXPO CHICAGO 2022
Work by

Paige Taul

Chicago Artists Coalition is proud to present new work by Paige Taul (BOLT, 2021-22) at EXPO CHICAGO 2022 in Booth 419. Paige was selected by guest curator Michael Darling ( cofounder and the chief growth officer of Museum Exchange) to be the EXPO CHICAGO exhibiting artist.


This two part installation features a short film and photo, inviting a dialogue between the present and the past.

"7-7-94 For my babe" is a short film made in reference to a polaroid sent to Paige’s mother from her father while he was in state prison. This film is an effort in imagining the moment the picture was taken, the anxieties of posterity, and what it means to be "cool". The film is shown in conjunction with a print of the photo.

Artist Paige Taul will be in dialogue with Michael Darling at Booth #419. Please join us for the conversation and Q&A.

This Exhibition is partially supported by a generous donation from Chanel Coney.

Paige Taul

Paige Taul (b.1996) is an Oakland, CA native who received her BA in Studio Art with a concentration in Cinematography from the University of Virginia and her MFA in Moving Image from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her work engages with and challenges assumptions of black cultural expression and notions of belonging through experimental cinematography. As a part of her filmmaking practice she tests the boundaries of identity and self-identification through autoethnography to approach notions of racial authenticity in veins such as religion, style, language, and other black community based experiences.
