Chicago Exhibition Weekend

September 29 – October 1, 2023

Exhibition Text

On August 27th— several weeks before we were scheduled to open our fall exhibition with Brooklyn-based artist Shaun Leonardo— a rogue pick-up truck drove through the front window of the gallery, effectively ceasing our operations for the next few months.

In the spirit of CXW’s larger mission, the gallery will use our currently boarded up storefront as a physical bulletin board for the community. We encourage all of our fellow galleries, institutions, artist studios and collectives to post their related physical show announcements, posters, maps and memorabilia to our façade facing a bustling stretch of Chicago Avenue. The visual palimpsest of our city’s dynamic, layered arts community will continue to evolve throughout the fall season. Please stop by to view and gather information during CXW!
