Freedom Dreams Artists' Talk + Performance

  • Pop Up Just Art Gallery 729 West Maxwell Street Chicago, IL, 60607 United States (map)

Eve Ewing and other artists will discuss how they responded to writings by incarcerated writers. Damon Locks will perform a new sound piece inspired by the exhibition. This event is part of the Freedom Dreams in an Age of Mass Incarceration exhibition connecting artists in and outside of prison. Chicago-area artists were commissioned to respond to writing developed by men in the Prison Neighborhood Arts Project's "Freedom Dreams" cultural studies class at Stateville Prison. The writings and artworks showcased in this exhibition – ranging from print and sculpture to photography and collage – urge the public to reconsider, rethink, and reimagine what freedom means, especially in the context of an ever-growing prison nation.
