For a century or more the Chicago arts community has struggled to define itself in relation to other artistic centers, such as Paris, New York or Los Angeles. While prominent American artists past and present have made Chicago their home at one point or another, many left to make their reputations elsewhere. Rather than submit to the label of “second” city, can Chicago be seen as a center in its own right with an artistic perspective and community as distinctive as its geography, economy and politics? This exhibition shows work by 40 artists, each chosen by a member of the Chicago art world, and invites viewers to join in a conversation about who’s famous, who used to be, and who ought to be.

An 86 page full-color catalog has been produced in conjunction with the exhibition, including essays by Robert Cozzolino, Wendy Greenhouse, Kirsten Jensen and Lynne Warren.
