Chicago ACT Collective
Community in Color, co-curated by Lauren Leving and the Arts of Life Curatorial Committee features work by Chicago-based artists and artists from both the Arts of Life studios. This exhibition showcases multiple interpretations of community. While some artists rely on the vibrancy of color to convey emotions connected to kinship, others choose to make work that more explicitly references the architectural and landscape elements that create a neighborhood.
Community in Color is constantly in flux, and imagines community building as an artistic practice in itself, shaped by collaborative projects that evolve over the course of the exhibition. The interactivity that stems from the artwork in this exhibit forges relationships between these artists, simultaneously expanding and unifying Chicago’s creative community.
