3219 S Morgan St, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Friday, June 17th, from 7PM - 10PM

On view through Saturday, July 2nd

Hang in There is an exhibition asking artists to make motivational artworks. Cultural producers often face difficult roads to develop a sustainable practice. This exhibition is an opportunity for artists to provide an alternative to the commodified and saturated market for motivation, transcending the usual glut of advice, adages, and worksheets to something more singular, incisive, heartfelt, and critically-minded.

New work from over 45 artists including (but not limited to): Jan Tichy, Wendy White, Industry of the Ordinary, Ken Fandell and Paint FX.

Performances by Rachel Mason, Joan of Arc, Mahjongg, Thank You Rosekind, Blue Ribbon Glee Club and Aleks and the Drummer.

Drinks by Hornswaggler and Maria’s Packaged Goods and Community Bar.

Special edition show catalogue with essays by Corrina Kirsch, Jason Lazarus, and Nicholas Wylie.

Curated by Jason Lazarus with assistance from Alex Schmidt.

Special thanks to Ed Marszewski, Maria’s Packaged Good and Community Bar and Co-Prosperity Sphere.
