Do Not Resist? Opening Reception

  • Hairpin Arts Center 2810 N. Milwaukee Ave. 2nd Floor (map)

Do Not Resist? 100 Years of Chicago Police Violence is a community-based, artist-led, visual project and exhibition, curated by a team of artists within For the People Artists Collective. 

The exhibition will allow audience members to engage with Chicago’s history of police violence in order to better understand what led to our present circumstances. The exhibition will invite viewers to imagine a future without policing, serving as a space in which we can envision new structures for community safety that are not reliant on police and prisons.

This month-long, city-wide exhibition will take place at the Hairpin Arts Center and Art In These Times in Logan Square, Uri-Eichen Gallery in Pilsen, and Roman Susan Gallery in Rogers Park. The exhibition will be paired with teach-ins, workshops, performances, and panels on the topic of policing, challenging state violence, exploring abolition, and community healing.
