The Peninsula Chicago is proud to present ‘I Am Somebody,’ an exhibition of works by AFRICOBRA artists Sherman Beck, Jeff Donaldson, Jae Jarrell, Wadsworth Jarrell and Gerald Williams. AFRICOBRA, or the African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists, is an artist collective that was founded on the south side of Chicago in 1968. Known for creating art to address social and cultural challenges affecting the Black community, AFRICOBRA is one of the most significant arts movements of the second part of the 20th century.
The exhibition is presented in partnership with Kavi Gupta and EXPO CHICAGO and is the sixth year that The Peninsula Chicago has hosted an art exhibit open to the public. The AFRICOBRA exhibition will be on display to the public from April 7 to mid-May 2022 and coincides with EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art, at Navy Pier, from April 7 to April 10, 2022.
