Hot Seven: The Chicago Breakdown


  • Gene Siskel Film Center 164 North State Street, Fl. 2 Chicago, IL 60601 (map)

Hot Seven: The Chicago Breakdown examines the notion of community and what it means to thrive with regard to issues and perspectives unique to diasporic populations in Chicago. Re-examining social responsibility and cultural agency, this exhibition will survey a conceptual and visceral people’s history with power structures, navigating dominant narratives and representation, and possibilities for resistance. These works highlight perspectives of what it means to be alive in a time/space of intersecting histories, geographies, and subjectivities providing a local homegrown narrative.

Featured artists Janice Bond, Ricardo Gamboa, Amanda Gutiérrez, Roberto Martinez, Oli Rodriguez, Darryl Terrell, and Darius Thomas. Curated by Sadie Woods.

Reception Thursday, August 18, 2016 from 5-8PM. Special performance by Sol Patches and Eiigo.

Show runs from Saturday, August 6- Sunday, September 25, 2016
