The Chicago Urban Art Society and the Chicago Loop Alliance's Pop-Up Art Loop Program present a show opening tonight titled, WORTH-WHILE. Curated by Kevin Wilson, this show will feature artwork by Josh Dihle, Garret Durant, Paul Louis Nelson, and Sighn. Info below from their site...
Every individual is responsible for finding one’s own purpose in life, in whatever manner that’s best fitting, and within this subjective process questions of personal value often arise. “WORTH-WHILE” is an exhibition featuring the work of four artists who explore this area of uncertainty with an emphasis on affirmation in art and the use of one’s practice as a sort of self-help ritual. Heavily based upon text and repetition, common themes in the work arise and a balancing act is created between seemingly positive messages and existential undertones of anxiety and sarcasm.
