Opening Friday, September 9th, from 6PM - 9PM
Curated by Rachel Jump, Carson Sanders and Taylor Curry of Aint-Bad, this exhibition highlights images and writings from a selection of artists who are currently making work in the Chicago area.
As of 2016, Brooklyn is the most unaffordable housing market in the nation, Los Angeles is slowly running out of water while the traffic chips away at everyone’s sanity, and Chicago has an ever growing problem of violence and corruption in local government. And while in the American Metropolis the creative mind is in high demand, the competition is steeper than ever before, and the economy in which artists must survive is equally as unforgiving. Despite all of this, artists and hopefuls are still pouring into these cities, searching for a creative community that is unlike anywhere else in the country.
The featured artists presented in Aint-Bad Metropolis: Chicago are also included in the Chicago portion of the next publication of Aint-Bad Magazine. A closing reception will be held on Friday, September 9th, 6-9pm. Copies of the publication will be available for purchase, as well as other books and publications from Aint-Bad.
