Street Food Lighting

1224 W Loyola Ave, Chicago IL
June 25, 2014 - July 5, 2014

Jorge Mañes Rubio brings street food visions from countries like Morocco, Thailand, or Indonesia and projects them onto streets in more developed countries with less lively nightlife.

In this project I would like to use the city as a white canvas to show the habits of different cultures. To promote our streets as places for social learning and exchange, making them brighter, safer and more interesting at the same time, bringing art to neighborhoods and people who normally don’t interfere with it.

– Jorge Mañes Rubio

Street Food Lighting will be presented June 25 to July 5, with projections ranging from sunset to early morning. This work may be viewed from the street; Roman Susan will not be open to the public during this time, except by appointment.
