Lemme Know When You Make It

Lemme Know When You Make It

Curated in collaboration with the Youth Board of Artists, this year’s teen exhibition brings together work by young artists from Teen Programs, teaching artists, exhibiting, and residency artists. The exhibition’s title refers to the caring reminder Chicago teens text to check that their friends arrived home safely and alludes to “making it” as creatives of many types. Works in the exhibition explore themes of collective safety, movement of people throughout the city and world, diasporic identities, boundaries crossed either physically or metaphorically, and coming of age on the South Side of the city.

Sequences, Iterations, and Permutations (SIP)

Sequences, Iterations, and Permutations (SIP) started as an online class in May of 2020. Instead of art-making that leads to one thing, artists in this class make collections of artworks that tell stories, depict emotions, or communicate ideas. Artists work in a range of mediums from photography, collage, printmaking, and drawing, to video, dance, sculpture, and poetry. This exhibition celebrates the community of over 50 artists who have participated in the class and is curated by Jasper Goodrich who designed and teaches the class.
