To support The Many Hats of Ralph Arnold: Art, Identity and Politics, an exhibition of photographic collages of the 1960s and 70s by prolific Chicago artist Ralph Arnold. Arnold’s multi-layered identity as a black gay Korean War veteran, activist, prominent teacher and member of Chicago’s art community is reflected in his vivid and complex visual arrangements, incorporating photomontage, painting, and text, with appropriated and mass-media imagery. A companion catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
