Sep 23rd 2017

This year we gave 3 grants to 3 artists who display work that we feel demands visibility! This night we would like to honor Xitlalli Sixta Tarin, Zhi Yuan Yang and Wayne P. Tate Jr. by looking at their work and having a discussion afterword.

Wayne P. Tate Jr. (they/he) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Chicago and a SAIC BFA Candidate. Their work travels within the mediums of comics, writing, video, and sometimes new media. Overall, they like to explore mental illness and its ties to their identity as a mixed queer/trans person of color.
