Angela Davis Fegan: Deep Needle
3219 S Morgan St, Chicago, IL 60608
Opening Friday, March 3rd, from 6PM - 9PM
On view through Sunday, April 23rd
Join us at Co-Prosperity as we celebrate our first window exhibition of 2023, Deep Needle by Angela Davis Fegan, with an opening reception and dance party this Friday, March 3rd from 6-9PM!
In her solo exhibition, Deep Needle, (March 3rd-April 23rd) Chicago artist Angela Davis Fegan presents mixed-media portraits and letterpress posters drenched with queer desire. The 18 paintings and 200 letterpress prints collected in this feature range from antifascist political slogans, intimate self-portraits with a lover, and abstract renderings of life at the intersection of political identities.
“While struggle is constant, Fegan allows us a window into the natural world, preserved in the materials she uses in her figurative work: handmade paper, dried flora and plant life, menstrual blood mixed into varnish and paint. These works are very much alive, and invite us to confront the barriers placed upon us–even those we place on ourselves–as a means of reaching further toward liberation “.

Deep Needle opens at Co-Prosperity on March 3rd and will run through April 23rd, with a special activation scheduled on March 21st.
