Place, Power, (Im)Possibilities
A Virtual Exhibition Opening
Date: September 9, 2020
RSVP via Eventbrite
The inaugural exhibition at the Chicago Justice Gallery featuring the work of Tonika Johnson
The Social Justice Initiative presents, Belonging: Place, Power, and (Im)Possibilities, a series of portraits and interviews by Tonika Johnson, chronicling the ways in which nine young people have been made to feel they don’t belong in their own city.
The exhibition explores how they push back against the politics of racism, exclusion, and containment by creating their own “free spaces” and organizations that contest the commons.
The opening will take place ONLINE and include the artwork, interactive components, and discussion with Johnson and youth.
