Paradise Now

@ Westside Justice Center

601 S California Ave, Chicago, IL 60612

Opening Sunday, February 16th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Thursday, April 30th

We exist in the future. We’ve been there, we know it. We slipped through the fissures of reality and emerged on another side of freedom. Paradise Now is a visual journey into fantasy, fairytale, myth, and futurism from Black and brown imaginations. We stitch alternate dimensions from the silk of reverie. When we dream, our souls rehearse liberation. We survived all your cages and tomorrow’s iridescent. You’re welcome.
