Hot Seven: The Chicago Breakdown

By Sadie Woods

Hot Seven: The Chicago Breakdown

Curated by Sadie Woods


August 6–September 25, 2016
Presented by the Gene Siskel Film Center and The School Of the Art Institute Chicago


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. Exhibition runs from Saturday, August 6th through Sunday, September 25th, 2016.

Featured artists: Janice Bond, Ricardo Gamboa, Amanda Gutiérrez, Roberto Martinez, Oli Rodriguez, Darryl Terrell, and Darius Thomas.
