Broken Dreams

Opening Friday, May 18, 6PM – 10PM

This exhibition brings together five Chicago artists who share the communication style of angst, frustration and disappointment of living in modern society. The exhibition is built around the theme of “punk” expression, which not only embraces aggression, violence and nihilism, but also self-reliance, DIY aesthetic and humor. Artists in this show do not try to create “punk art,” rather they approach the subject with the same attitude as youth in punk bands around the world. Visuals are harsh, and to the point, with sharp edges, and high contrasts. The use of these elements includes anti-design and ugly aesthetics –visual manifestations of punk’s brutal, discordant sound.
