BEVERLY FRESH: Really Somethin' Else

Thursday, Apr 26 – Aug 5, 2018 6 – 8 pm

Chicago, IL 60614

In his first solo museum exhibition in Chicago, artist, musician, and back-road drifter Beverly Fresh takes on the incongruities, social rituals, and archetypes of the rural Midwest. Pulling from age-old performance traditions, juvenile graffiti, backyard debauchery, adult social clubs, amateur living room theater, and pig wrestling, “Really Somethin Else” is a keyed-up regurgitation of rural Midwestern symbols, behaviors, and vernacular. His immersive installations take visitors through peripheral elements of American culture.
