Alumni on 5 Exhibit: Revolution of Self

September 23, 2011 – March 9, 2012
Columbia College Chicago Library
624 S. Michigan Avenue, 5th Floor

The fall 2011 Alumni on 5 exhibition explores the rawness of self-portraiture and self-exploration when it is approached with honesty, both brutal and beautiful; our necessary non-fictions.

What is self-portrait and how can you use it to express revolution of self?
What happens when everything you thought you once knew has been altered; when the necessary fictions melt away? What does this change look like? How do you express this revolution/revelation, in your art?
