Arts + Public Life at the University of Chicago
Chicago, IL

“Never So Free: Black Queer Art + Assembly in Chicago” is a salon and program series that brings together a small intergenerational cohort of Black queer artists to research and develop projects about the rich history of queer Black arts spaces in Chicago. The program expands in the fall and winter with a collection of free public programs highlighting the cohort’s findings, coupled with collaborative art-making experiences. This project serves as a pilot initiative, marking the beginning of an ongoing effort to transform Arts + Public Life’s Green Line Performing Arts Center into a South Side hub for assembly and creativity and a supportive space for a new generation of queer Black artists to engage in creative endeavors.
