New Year, and welcome to my winter update 2016! Below, I
share upcoming, ongoing, and recent events from Patrick Earl Hammie
I’m very pleased to announce a new relationship with Kruger
my first solo show with the gallery and in Chicago, opens
February 25. The
gallery just opened its second space in Marfa, TX with Adrian Esparza,
and kicked of this year in Chicago with Sienna Shields.
After Image, my
solo show with Greymatter Gallery opened in October and was another fun
and successful collaboration. I had the enormous pleasure at Art Basel
of having my work hung next to Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Bradford,
Glen Ligon, and other heroes in Beautiful Tonight,
a private viewing at Cafeina showcasing Latino and African American artists in the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection. What's Inside Her Never Dies at
Yeelen Gallery opened that same week and was a blast!
The show runs through February 28.

a female and a male figure locked in a physical dialogue, hefting
weight, and reorienting inherited expectations of ruined and
objectified bodies that recall and carry on complex legacies of
suffering and struggle. Informed by historical representations of
Otherness and recent shifts that locate women and people of color
as central influencers of culture and politics, this collection
provides occasion for us to encounter difference toward considering
their capacity for establishing new narratives.

Reception: April 6, 5 –7pm Curator: Christopher Reno
We live in an era of superhero saturation. But who created these
superheroes? And whom do they represent? While mainstream comic books
actively experiment with alternative universes and progressive ideas,
they are created for mass consumption and often shy
away from true alternatives. The artists in this survey create comics
and comic book imagery specifically for communities not often
represented in mainstream comics. From the
Black Lives Matter movement to the local voices of children
facing incarceration or foster care, these artists illustrate stories
about superheroes that live among us.
UPCOMING: MARCH 15
