CURRENT SHOW: THREE TIMES IN A ROW
CAMERON GRANGER / CHERYL POPE / ELLIOT PURSE / CAMERON WELCH
Opens Saturday April 28th, 8pm
runs through early June 2018
Three Times in a Row is an exhibition of artists whose work centers around aspects of underrepresented youth. The works on view hint at memorabilia, and the capitalized appropriation of the creation and content that originate in these youths’ communities. Each artist points at the dangers of misunderstanding this reality. At this pressing time, we are reminded of the urgency of American gun violence, and how many young lives have been stolen or unfairly changed. Through their various media, artists Cameron Granger, Cheryl Pope, Elliot Purse, and Cameron Welch make respective bridges across this gulf of what has been taken. Their work marks this conversation — which must maintain a central space in a united youth culture.
There will be a pre-opening discussion amongst the artists, and Rodney Lucas - the host of the short VICE documentary ‘The Children Treating Gunshot Wounds on Chicago’s South Side.’ This documentary follows UJIMAA MEDICS, the teachers, the students, and their mission.
UJIMAA MEDICS is a group of Black community members (teenagers, medical care workers, activists, pastors, professionals) in Chicago who offer training in emergency first response medicine, as well as crisis management, to people who live in the neighborhoods where shootings often occur.
In honor of the young people who are spreading this vital and life-saving information, the opening and closing of this exhibition will serve as a fundraiser for UJIMAA MEDICS. 25% of bar sales will be donated.
Additionally, throughout the exhibition, a series of signed artist posters are available for sale. The posters are on view in tangent with the exhibition. Each poster is $25, and the proceeds go to UJIMAA MEDICS.
*The title 'Three Times in a Row' is taken from the peom 'Instructions for Stopping' by Dana Levin.
