It Might Be Curator Talk

Our dialogue will be set amidst It Might Be curated by Chuck U, which features 13 of Chuck’s FAVORITE artists on the planet. This is the first time that Chuck has played the role of curator throughout his extensive art career spanning over 15 years. “It is important to me to curate and participate in a show that encourages viewers to find meaning in art that resonates with them and to facilitate opportunities for people to connect with art on a personal level regardless of the intent of the artist.” – Chuck U. 

Throughout the evening we will learn more about who Chuck U is as an artist, we are sure that the audience will have never-ending questions as this is also the first time Chuck has sat down for a candid artist talk in a gallery space. From there we will shift gears into what it was like for him to create this all star roster of illustrative lowbrow artists that expand the definition of fine art, story, and fantasy; dive deeper into his theme of “It Might Be” and spend some time highlighting featured artworks in the room.

Chuck U is an illustrator, painter, and muralist from Minneapolis MN. He has been making and exhibiting work professionally for over 15 years and is known for his signature intensive line work and imaginative subjects, color palettes, and compositions. With “It Might Be” Chuck U adds his influence to his first curatorial debut and hopes to embolden people to explore the viewers’ inclination to seek narrative and meaning within illustrative art and how this commonality is shared between both viewer and artist whether making or digesting artworks.
