Opening Reception: Peeling Off the Grey

Peeling off the Grey
May 11 - October 7, 2018
Chicago Gallery

 

The varying shades of grey coating the exteriors of “new” homes and “new” businesses across Pilsen have become more than just a fresh painted façade. It is this façade, that is concealing the richness of culture, hard working families and the history that has made this a prosperous and thriving community.

Peeling off the Grey is an exhibition picking, prying and peeling off the layers of gentrification in Pilsen; to expose, let breathe, and share with others what the turmoil and dismantling of a community’s heart looks and feels like underneath. Shown through the work of artists and activists, the different experiences, documentation, reactions and actions towards defending and protecting neighborhoods like Pilsen.

Opening Reception: May 11, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.
