DESCRIPTION

January 28 - March 15, 2013 EXTENDED To March 22, 2013

Reception: January 31, 5-8PM

Taking its cue from San Francisco-based writer and performer D. Scot Miller’s AfroSurreal Manifesto: Black is the New Black, Marvelous Freedom: Vigilance of Desire, Revisited is a group exhibition that explores Chicago’s contemporary and emerging artists of color who approach art-making through an Afro-Surrealist lens. Curated by School of the Art Institute of Chicago BFA candidate, Alexandria Eregbu, Marvelous Freedom: Vigilance of Desire, Revisited engages the richness of Chicago’s Surrealist history in order to extend, expand, and re-impose new visions of 21st century Afro-Surrealist aesthetics and cultural concerns, reexamining the first Marvelous Freedom/Vigilance of Desire, the Surrealist exhibition that took place in Chicago in 1976.

Curated by: Alexandria Eregbu
