artOUT is a student-led group affiliated with Gallery 400, the contemporary art gallery at UIC. artOUT aims to create opportunities that connect UIC students with Gallery 400 and the wider Chicago arts community. Members work alongside Gallery staff and community partners to plan and execute programming while learning about the inner-workings of a unique non-profit art space.

This Spring semester, artOUT is developing a pop-up mobile exhibition that travels to various spaces around campus. The theme of this exhibition is home: what does home mean, look, and sound like to you? This program is presented in association with Gallery 400’s upcoming exhibition, Alberto Aguilar moves on human scale. Alberto’s first large-scale survey explores how the Chicago-born and based artist’s various life roles and surroundings have shaped a searching, inquisitive practice that is grounded in, and produces, a radical everyday.
