A contemporary art space in Little Italy, Baader-Meinhof has exhibited cutting edge and experimental artwork by emerging national and international artists. Check out The Reader‘s coverage of Minor Rationalism, an exhibition curated by the Chicago-based Eric Schmid. Baader-Meinhof is located at 1322 S. 6th St.

Through Sept. 10, Reed Moore will feature one item each day from Jonathan Orozco’s Art Show Guide. As the delta variant spreads through the community, remember to get fully vaccinated and mask up — even if you’re fully vaxxed — before checking out these shows.
