Hereafter: A Tribute to Timothy S. Brower
Curated by Holly Greenberg
Opening Saturday, June 26th 2–6pm
“Hereafter” features the work of 25 artists who have been influenced by the life and work of the late Timothy S. Brower (1964 – 2017.) In his multiple roles as co-founder of the Bodybuilder and Sportsman Gallery and educator at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Syracuse University, Tim was involved in teaching and guiding a generation of budding artists. He was ubiquitous in the 90’s Wicker Park art and music community, exhibiting his own kinetic interactive sculptures in the Uncomfortable Spaces and hosting crowds at his Division Street gallery. The artists in this collection, many of whom are now scattered across the country, embody a time and place when a DIY spirit of artist collectives took root in Chicago.
