In the spirit of the most beautiful summer in years, Corbett vs. Dempsey is pleased to present Big Youth, an exhibition of 13 emerging painters from Chicago.

Over the last half decade, CvsD has noted a new wave of exciting young artists making uncommonly strong work. This show culls a baker's dozen of the best, all of them affiliated with the School of the Art Institute, many of them with its summer school, OxBow. Though all of the pieces in this exhibition are paintings, they are in a variety of media and sizes, on paper, canvas, board and a single painted object. Subject matter is similarly various, ranging from deeply considered abstractions and iconoclastic figurative canvases to wild, glorious landscapes. Reference points include earlier generations of Chicago art like the Monster Roster and Hairy Who and contemporary heavyweights like Richard Artschwager and Peter Doig.

Directly following the opening, Corbett & Dempsey will take on their friends at Roots & Culture, around the corner, in a no-holds-barred DJ soundclash. Call it experience vs. youth - you be the judge!
