Ojero: A Character of Culture

Event Description

When: Nov 02 – Jan 05 | 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Where: Elephant Room, Inc. 704 S Wabash Ave. Chicago

Ojero: A Character of Culture” a new work by Sam Kirk
If you’re looking for something a little more relaxed  to celebrate Day of the Dead, make sure to check out Sam Kirk’s exhibit “Ojero” at the Elephant Room.
This is not just an exhibition but also a celebration of the merging of multiple Latino traditions. The skeletons of Dia de Los Muertos combined with the superstition of Mal de Ojo, or the evil eye, create a character Sam calls an Ojero.

The Ojero is Sam’s interpretation of the process in which Mal de Ojo is given and received. Combining the traditional Halloween practices she participated in as a child and the Latino traditions that she was surrounded by, Sam created this version of a calaca. Ojeros make their way out into the world to hypnotize, bewitch and bewilder as many innocent people as they can. It’s a game complete with costumes, dancing and debauchery.
