Make your Own Passport - KIPP Chicago Public Schools

Make your Own Passport

Winter 2016

This exhibition asked students to explore and question ideas of space, borders, and boundaries by learning about two contemporary artists: Tintin Wulia and Mark Bradford. Both of these artists re-examine and critique our understanding of maps and border politics.

Tintin Wulia is a contemporary Indonesian artist living in Australia whose work centers around ideas of borders and our national versus individual identities. Mark Bradford is a Los Angeles-based mixed media artist most known for his large-scale mixed media collages using salvaged materials to create map-like abstractions.

KIPP Chicago interpreted assignments created by both artists so that students could begin to question and examine maps and borders on micro and macro scales.

How to book a group tour

A one-hour tour includes a conversation around each art exhibit, a short video, and an activist button-making activity. We are a small, one-room museum inside the KIPP Chicago regional office, so we can only accommodate groups of 25 people or fewer. Students in grades K-12 are welcome! Email to schedule a tour.
