Bold Disobedience is a group exhibition presented in collaboration with Mikva Challenge. Selected by a council of twelve student curators, this collection of works demonstrates myriad social issues that matter to youths today. The exhibition comprises works by local professional artists as well as student artists from the Chicago High School for the Arts. These artworks grapple with the issues that our team of student curators have deemed most critical in our conflicted contemporary culture, promoting racial justice, economic equity, and queer rights. The student curators have directed every aspect of this exhibition, from research to conceptualization to installation.
Featured artists: Thalia Agosto, Natalie Aparicio, Evan Calabrese, Angela Davis Fegan, Maya Halko, Josue Herrera, Zachary Huff, Jaclyn Jacunski, Kuumba Lynx, Yvette Mayorga, Cheryl Pope, Prison + Neighborhood Arts Project, Sarah Ross, Dread Scott, and Raven Smith
