This exhibition, running from February 23 to April 16th insightfully explores the fullness of Black experience in America and abroad. Through exhibitions, lectures, and artist engagements artists and scholars contribute to nuanced, and unique dissections on the historical, embodied, and psychological experiences of people of color. This ongoing engagement draws ties between three solo exhibitions, each of which speak from black experience.
First up is Ervin A. Johnson.

After graduating from the University of Illinois- Urbana Champaign with a bachelor’s in Rhetoric he began work on his second bachelor’s at Columbia College Chicago in photography.
