Hot Seven: The Chicago Breakdown

August 18, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Hot Seven: The Chicago Breakdown examines the notion of community and what it means to thrive with regard to issues and perspectives unique to diasporic populations in Chicago. Re-examining social responsibility and cultural agency, this exhibition will survey a conceptual and visceral people’s history with power structures, navigating dominant narratives and representation, and possibilities for resistance. These works highlight perspectives of what it means to be alive in a time/space of intersecting histories, geographies, and subjectivities providing a local homegrown narrative.
