The President’s Gallery at Harold Washington College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago, will present “Program / Suffer / Abstain / Deprogram,” a group exhibition guest curated by Bert Stabler, a Chicago art teacher, writer and artist. Stabler chose 16 exhibiting artists who submitted work that fit the theme of art “erasing and overwriting oneself, negatively and positively.” The work in the exhibition will be in a variety of media forms including video, painting and drawing and installation.
Exhibiting artists include Nick Black, Edra Soto, David Moré, Chris Santiago, Jacob C. Hammes, Matthew Joynt, Kirsten Leenaars, Lee Relvas, Franklin Pollard, John Preus, David Scherer Water, Pilar Tena, Evan Burrows, Liz McCarthy, Paul Mack, and Thad Kellstadt.
A performance and reading event titled “Punish Perception End Desire” will be held on Thursday, June 21, 2012, at 6 p.m. in room 1115. This event is free and open to the public.
