This Heat

@ Weinberg/Newton Gallery

300 W. Superior Street, Suite 203 Chicago, Il.

Opening Friday, June 24th, from 5PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, September 24th

This Heat is a summer-long exhibition featuring three Chicago-based artists. Their works respond to the gun violence epidemic in Chicago and are driven by a particular sense of responsibility to their community and its youth. The artists investigate issues of racism, segregation, and the media’s representation of crime through material exploration and community collaboration. Installation-based projects, from sound and sculpture to video and photography, fill the gallery with the question: how do we grapple with the enormity of these issues? This Heat works to continue these conversations and fight the heat on our streets.
