> DESCRIPTION

The word revolution inspires reactions and emotions of varying degrees. To some, it’s fighting words.  To others, it’s hope.  To the artists involved in the special exhibit titled “Revolution 2012”, it is artistic expression.  Change is constantly happening around the world, and currently the middle class worldwide is standing together to insist change happen for them, for us, for the 99%.  The artwork for this exhibit portrays where artists think 2012 will take us. The artwork will be displayed in a group exhibit “Revolution 2012”, at Jackson Junge Gallery, 1389 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago from January 17th to February 26th, 2012.  An opening reception, free to the public, will be held Friday, January 20th from 6 – 9pm.

Revolutions have inspired many humanitarian forms in the past. This is perhaps why “The Protestor” was named TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year.  Peace, equality and fairness are common mantras in many revolutionary movements.  Heroes, stories of valor and honesty are born from these movements.  Change for betterment becomes a demand rather than a wish.  

Often those perceived to have no power are given a stronger voice in numbers.  Adding to those numbers this month are 30 artists from across the country.  Mediums include painting, photography, sculpture, print work, installation, digital and fiber arts.

Artists were asked to address ideas already being expressed in the streets of many cities nationwide.  They responded with subject matters including corporate greed, homelessness, economic inequality, and standing up for the middle class.  This important exhibition of artwork also includes unique performances based on current events, during the opening reception held Friday, January 20th from 6 –9pm.
