The exhibition Chicago 9 is a curatorial project that evolved through art residency periods and studio visits between the years 2015-2017. The project includes 9 Chicago based visual and audio practitioners whose work has evolved and is informed by similar concepts of transformation, healing and alchemy that take various transcending forms. The Chicago 9 also break from the visual and conceptual molds that have become the “hallmark style” in Chicago’s Art scene for many years. A mix of South side alchemy and West side ritual take precedence in this exposé at the Prizm Art Fair.
