The Opposite of Slick: Chicago’s Screen Printers
NOV 15 – JAN 19 | Ralph Arnold Fine Arts Annex | Free
Reception: NOV 15 | Thurs. 5-6:30 PM | Free
Chicago’s lively underground screen-printing scene takes the spotlight in this exhibition of recent recognizable gig posters, T-shirts and art prints. This vibrant movement represents a reaction to and departure from the slick photoshopped designs that surround Chicago, like the entirety of Michigan Avenue crowded with advertisements or those plastered on buses, turning instead to handmade aesthetics and affordable processes. This exhibition features the work of accomplished artists of the visual arts including Jay Ryan, Delicious Design League, Sonnenzimer, Johnny Sampson, Crosshair, Justin Santora, CHema Skandal!, and Sleepy Kitty.
