Aint-Bad Metropolis: Chicago

Filter Photo is pleased to present Aint-Bad Metropolis: Chicago. Featuring the work of Patty Carroll, Paul D’Amato, John Lusis, Jason Reblando, and Leonard Suryajaya and curated by Rachel Jump, Carson Sanders, and Taylor Curry of Aint-Bad, this exhibition highlights images from a selection of artists who are currently making work in the Chicago area.


The featured artists presented in the exhibition Aint-Bad Metropolis: Chicago are also included in the Chicago portion of Issue No.11 of Aint–Bad Magazine. Issue No.11 explores a larger publication divided into three smaller parts. When whole, the Metropolis series acts as a collection of visually compelling contemporary photography from the largest of the three cities in the U.S.: Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. It is a challenging task to curate work from cities with such dense histories of art and culture. Each city has experienced at this point it’s own unique mini history of photography, worthy of an entire textbook for each city. 


Exhibition Dates: August 5 – September 10, 2016

Location: Filter Space | 1821 W Hubbard St, Suite 207
