4. RECESS. Curated by Tempestt Hazel 

3831 South Michigan, Chicago, Illinois 60653

Recess is a group exhibition that uses images associated with youth and play to provide a much needed respite from the weight of everyday reality. Bringing together contemporary artists working across mediums with artists from the South Side Community Art Center’s permanent collection, these works create a space that provokes the act of daydreaming and encourages one to tap into the recesses of the imagination in order to create new mythologies, narratives and images that are unencumbered by those often tethered to the Black experience.

Featured Artists: Caitlin Cherry, Krista Franklin, James T. Green, David Leggett, Christina A. Long, Cecil McDonald Jr. & avery r. young

Featured Collection Artists: Archibald Motley Jr., Al Price, Charles Davis, Rosalie Davis, Jon Jones, William McBride, Eric W. Anderson, Maurice Benson & Ben Bey
