“We’re A Wonder,” 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. Ervin Johnson, Jamea Richmond-Edwards and Olivier Souffrant, in their own voices, offer a perspective. Edwards depicts black life, fashion, and and iconic personas, Johnson violently deforms skin and color, and Souffrant explores personal and collective narratives. 

Olivier Souffrant ​​is now on display through April 16th. Souffrant is an emerging Chicago-based artist Olivier-Jean-Daniel Souffrant, born in Haiti and witness to the coup d’état of 2004 and later the earthquake of 2010, explores the depths of emotional and physical interiors through the layering of paint and images culled from social media.
