LeRoy Nieman Gallery Opening and Celebration.
De Nue is an exhibition featuring emerging BLACK artists from the SAIC community, curated by Da’Niro Elle Brown (BFA 2017), with Janelle Miller (BFA 2017), and Brianna McIntyre (BFA 2017). Participating artists were chosen by a jury including the curators and a selection of Chicago arts professionals. Filling the LeRoy Neiman Center Gallery, Gallery X and the display cases of the Flaxman Library and the Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection, this exhibition is a confrontation, challenging SAIC and the public to complicate its ideas of Blackness and what it means to make BLACK art.
Jurors include, Faheem Majeed (artist), Aymar Jean Christian (OPENTV), Felicia Mings (AIC), and Beatrix Brooks (ARC Gallery, MAE SAIC).
DJ set by Sadie Woods from 10pm-12am.
