About the event
In honor of EXPO weekend in Chicago and as we approach the close of "i said what i said," a presentation of work by artist Jewel Ham, we invite you to party with us at the Stony Island Arts Bank as we celebrate Chicago's contemporary art scene. From 8 PM - 10 PM, DJ Duane Powell will be spinning in honor of Frankie Knuckles, the Godfather of House Music, with a set inspired by the Frankie Knuckles collection at the Arts Bank.
"i said what i said" is an exhibition of works by artist Jewel Ham that includes portraits that explore the complexity of Black experiences within everyday environments. The show’s title summarizes the audacious attitudes Ham depicts in her works and encourages audiences to adopt. In various shades of red, Ham alludes to the beauty and innovation that manifest from the hardships. She invites viewers on an emotional journey that contextualizes the need for unapologetic expression.
Experience this body of work up close Thursdays through Sundays at the Stony Island Arts Bank through April 10, 2022. 'i said what i said' is presented as part of Rebuild Foundation's yearlong collaboration with Anthony Gallery to highlight emerging and established artists working across the field of contemporary art. This party is presented with the generous support of Hennessy.
