Heartbreak—A Processing SpaceCurated in collaboration with Rick Valicenti
Apr 22 to May 12, 2017
Statement by Rick Valicenti:
In January 2017 a studio of designers and fine artsists began a collaborative research and making initiative in response to 762 homicides in Chicago during 2016.
Our work has been dedicated to those around us impacted by gun violence - loved ones and their families, friends, neighbors, the first responders, clerics, policy makers, and the many thousand members of the local public.
Our time was not devoted to debating the Second Amendment, or trying to find solutions to the economic issues that promote Chicago gun violence.
Our focus remains in response to gun violence and how we, as empathetic creative individuals, can awaken civility, public awareness, policy discourse, and all the while renew respect for life.
