Diverse works by established and emerging artists.

Easy Otabor’s Anthony Gallery in Chicago recently launched its inaugural show of the year entitled “SOMETHING ABOUT US.” The presentation features interdisciplinary works by 14 established and emerging artists. The works in the exhibition shed light on the legacy of African and Black American contemporary art while celebrating Black culture across diverse subjects portrayed.

Participating artists in the exhibit include Layo Bright, Gerald Lovell, Muna Malik, Bryant Giles, Noel W Anderson, Mark Thomas Gibson, Shaun Crawford, Ludovic Nkoth, Adeshola Makinde, David Leggett, February James, Nikko Washington, Mario Moore, Delfin Finley.

Highlighted pieces include a figurative painting made using hand dyed cotton and silk chenille by Crawford portraying a Black version of Mickey Mouse called Jugg Finnesse, a realist oil on canvas portrait entitled More Than Ever by Finley depicting a young African American teenager in a grey hoodie binded by ropes and a distorted tapestry work by Noel Anderson spotlighting Michael Jordan.
