Tonika Lewis Johnson: Everyday Englewood

@ Loyola University Museum of Art

820 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60611

Opening Friday, February 9th, from 5:30PM - 7:30PM

On view through Saturday, June 2nd

Activist-artist Tonika Lewis Johnson’s visually stunning photographs document daily life in Englewood. Johnson tenderly challenges the sensationalized, damage-centered narrative of the Chicago South Side neighborhood in which she was raised. Her images celebrate the resilience of urban Black culture in Englewood by portraying levity, triumph, joy and normalcy. In December, Johnson was named one of Chicago Magazine’s 2017 Chicagoans of the Year.
