What does an American look like? Who is welcome in this country? What is every American’s duty in the face of racist government action?

Follow Alphawood Gallery to stay updated on the upcoming show Then They Came for Me: Incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII and the Demise of Civil Liberties, debuting Thursday, June 29 and continuing through November 19, 2017.

"Artist Karen Finley is known for addressing homophobia and misogyny during the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis.

On an afternoon this spring, echoing off the whitewashed walls of a Chicago gallery, voices of HIV+ artists rose in tones both mournful and defiant. It was the sound of Karen Finley's Anti-Workshop: A Call to Action , an artist takeover of the brand-new Alphawood Gallery where the Art AIDS America Chicago exhibition made its last stop on a national tour.

The "call" was 18 participating artists asking an audience to listen, touch, see, and feel for themselves the challenges of art-driven AIDS activism. The essence of what transpired over the takeover's two hour duration was captured in a video, premiering today on Creators."

Want more? Karen Finley will be returning for another Anti-Workshop this Fall for Then They Came For Us! Follow us to stay in the loop.
