Where the Future Came From is a collective research project on the integral role of feminism and women-run art activities throughout Chicago’s history, from the late-19th century to the present. The project includes a symposium, the creation of a participatory-research space within an exhibition environment, the presentation of several related programs documented through a publication, and the development of an archive representing the history of women-run spaces in Chicago.
