Please join us for the the first exhibition opening of 2018. We will be celebrating Faheem Majeed’s new sculptural installation, Unite, Thursday, February 17th from 4:00-6:00pm in the gallery.
Faheem Majeed (American, b. 1976) is a builder—literally and metaphorically. A resident of the South Shore neighborhood in Chicago, Majeed often looks to the material makeup of his neighborhood and surrounding areas as an entry point into larger questions around civic-mindedness, community activism, and institutional racism. As part of his studio practice, the artist transforms materials such as particle board, scrap metal and wood, and discarded signs and billboard remnants, breathing new life into these often overlooked and devalued materials. His broader engagement with the arts also involves arts administration, curation, and community facilitation, all which feed into his larger practice.
Exhibit catalogues designed by Sonnenzimmer will be available for purchase. This event is free and open to the public.
