Edra Soto loves photo archives, and her latest installation at the Hyde Park Art Center is itself an archive. Over 10 years, she has created what she calls architectural interventions through her GRAFT project. These pieces take the form of structural installations, often in public spaces. Her new exhibit, Destination/El Destino: A Decade of GRAFT, captures years of architectural interventions through fragments and photos.
In this episode, we talk to Edra about her origin story as a Puerto Rican born artist working in Chicago. You can see Destination/El Destino at the Hyde Park Art Center for free, seven days a week through Aug.13.
