RECENT AND UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS
Woman Made Gallery

February 22-March 16, 2019
The Pussy Hat demonstrations elevated a simple, hand-made, woman-made pink hat to a central image which connected massive women’s protests across the country and around the world. The Nasty Women exhibitions seemed similarly organic and instantaneous, springing up in cities large and small around the US. The #MeToo phenomenon has also spread like wild fire and continues to empower women to find the courage to address the world from the shared stage of their common experiences.
These effective visual and communicative grassroots uprisings herald a new species of artistic power, and new realms of visibility for women through art.
Pride and Predjudice: gender realities in the 21st Century
1463 West Chicago Ave
June 20 - July 14, 2018
GENDER—perhaps the most essential aspect of one’s person— has transcended the binary ideas of the past, evolving into complex conceptions about identity and sexuality. While contemporary gender expression has created space for empowerment and freedoms for many, it remains confusing for some, wrong-headed for others, and a topic that is continually fascinating to the media. Many welcome this attention and the progress it bodes; but it has also resulted in pain, harassment, and discrimination for others.
ARC, established as a woman-run gallery 45 years ago, continues to embrace and honor the various struggles associated with belonging to a particular gender. Because of this mission, the gallery is presenting a juried exhibition entitled “Pride and Prejudice” which will open in June 2018–the same month as the Pride Parade in Chicago.

SCAD presents "Waves," a solo exhibition by SCAD alumnus Michael Hubbard (B.F.A., painting, 2009). Hubbard’s artistic practice addresses intersections between popular culture, music and feminism. Through mediums including painting, drawing, installations, artist books and mixtapes, Hubbard composes a vibrant constellation of artwork that works together as a whole.
