South Side Speculations
April 4 - June 28, 2019
South Side Speculations grew out of a two-year intergenerational collaboration among Chicago-based high school students, arts and humanities scholars, and practicing artists and storytellers. The exhibits should provoke questions about how we want the future of Chicago’s South Side to look, as it resists easy answers based on dominant representations of the city today.

This exhibit was paired with a panel discussion lead by GenForward Director Cathy Cohen, BYP 100 member Trina Reynolds-Tyler, and young members of the South Side Speculations team. In a session moderated by Amanda Lewis, the Director of UIC’s Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy, they engaged in dialogue about the experiences, opportunities, and challenges young people and their communities face.
