FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Chicago Artists Coalition is pleased to present ‘Preview 9: A Boldness to Dare and Try,’ featuring works of art by Leticia Bernaus, Karen Dana Cohen, Jacquelyn Carmen Guerrero, Alejandro Jiménez-Flores, Tamara Becerra Valdez, and Latham Zearfoss.
The six dynamic visual artists in the exhibition demonstrate a mastery of the formal and conceptual, as tools to advance their creativity and confront social challenges. They are dedicated to their respective crafts and have triumphed in unexpected artistic environments, despite opposition that may stifle their creative expression or personal identity. In various assertions, this group of artists redefines and claims culture and space as her/his/their own, without apology.
‘Preview 9: A Boldness to Dare and Try’ is curated by Asha Iman Veal.
The exhibition runs from September 6-20, 2019, with an opening reception on Friday, September 6, from 5-8PM. A closing reception and breakfast will occur on Friday, September 20, from 9-11AM, in conjunction with EXPO ART WEEK, part of EXPO CHICAGO 2019 (http://www.expochicago.com).
