Over the last half decade, CvsD has noted a new wave of exciting  young artists making uncommonly strong work.  This show culls a baker’s dozen of the best, all of them affiliated with the School of the Art Institute, many of them with its summer school, OxBow. Though all of the pieces in the exhibition are paintings, they are in a range of media and sizes, on paper, canvas, board and a single painted object.  Subject matter is similarly various, ranging from  deeply considered abstractions and iconoclastic figurative canvases to animals and wild landscapes.  Reference points include earlier generations of Chicago art from the Monster Roster and Hairy Who, and contemporary heavyweights from Richard Artschwager to Peter Doig.

Directly following the opening, CvsD will take on their friends at Roots & Culture, around the corner, in a no-holds-barred DJ soundclash.  Call it experience vs. youth – you be the judge!

Big Youth is accompanied by full-color 28 page catalog.
