Never The Same is an educational, curatorial and archive project focused on Chicago's rich history of socially and politically engaged art.
From Never The Same: "The goal of this project is to document Chicago’s rich art history and develop a language for discussing the impact of socially and politically engaged art practices that integrates consideration of external with internal transformation and effects.
The 120 page Unfurlings catalog designed in duotone by Josh MacPhee and edited by Daniel Tucker and Rebecca Zorach that includes extensive interviews with Faheem Majeed, Abigail Satinsky, Liliana Angulo Cortes, Extinct Entities and a forward by Lisa Yun Lee."
This book by Never The Same documents one panel, one exhibition, two seminars, two symposia, two summits, and ten show-and-tell events. Anyone interested in socially-engaged, political, activist, or community-focused art in Chicago spanning the last 40 or so years, will surely find lots of value in the many practices discussed in this densely packed book.
