@ Co-Prosperity Sphere
3219 S Morgan St, Chicago, Illinois 60608
Opening Friday, May 18th, from 6PM - 10PM
On view through Friday, June 1st
This exhibition brings together five Chicago artists who share the communication style of angst, frustration and disappointment of living in modern society. The exhibition is built around the theme of “punk” expression, which not only embraces aggression, violence and nihilism, but also self-reliance, DIY aesthetic and humor. Artists in this show do not try to create “punk art,” rather they approach the subject with the same attitude as youth in punk bands around the world. Visuals are harsh, and to the point, with sharp edges, and high contrasts. The use of these elements includes anti-design and ugly aesthetics –visual manifestations of punk’s brutal, discordant sound.
Work by: Eric Stefanski, Jason LaMantia, Omar Velázquez, Stano Grezdo, and Tom Torluemke
