Jun 24 – Sep 24, 2016
Opening Reception: Jun 24, 5 – 8PM
This Heat is a summer-long exhibition featuring three Chicago-based artists. Their works respond to the gun violence epidemic in Chicago and are driven by a particular sense of responsibility to their community and its youth. Through material exploration and community collaboration, the artworks investigate issues of racism, segregation, and the media's representation of crime. From sound and sculpture to video and photography, installation-based projects ask: How do we grapple with the enormity of these issues? This Heat continues the conversation and confronts the rising violence on our streets.
Featuring work by Cheryl Pope, Garland Martin Taylor, and Krista Wortendyke.
