“PROGRAM / SUFFER / ABSTAIN / DEPROGRAM”
President’s Gallery at Harold Washington College
A group show curated by Bert Stabler and inspired by Greek philosopher Epicetus’ writing on suffering, the exhibition elegantly presented a number of perspectives on the forces we consent to and those beyond our control that keep us from being whole. The irony of being on view in what is essentially the lobby to the City College president’s office as intense debates about the direction of the CCCs rage on with Mayor Emanuel was not lost on viewers and provided a compelling backdrop for this challenging exhibit.
