A previous version of this article contained an error incorrectly stating that Davina Semo’s solo exhibition at Jessica Silverman Gallery opens this summer. Her solo exhibition opens next March; this summer she is part of a group show at the gallery.
Mariana Castillo Deball’s show at the University of Chicago will take place at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, not the Smart Museum.
Genesis Belanger does not glaze her sculptures.
