INTRINSIC by Tai Taeoalii – Opening Event

Jackson Junge Gallery and artist Tai Taeoalii invite attendees to engage with his new installation, INTRINSIC, during an immersive experience the afternoon and evening of Saturday, April 20th. The events are free and open to the public.

INTRINSIC features a symbolic central painting that connects 25 ballpoint pen drawings of “ordinary, but nuanced objects, intrinsic to the growth of his soul and with a literal twist”. Hip-hop, filmmaking, tattoo, graffiti, even slam poetry all seeped powerful ingredients into Taeoalii’s formulation as an artist. Taeoalii wanted to celebrate INTRINSIC with a series of immersive performances that honor these influences.

2-5pm: Live audience episode recordings of The DOD45 Show podcast featuring “Rich Jones”, Defcee” and “Nightwalker”
6-10pm: Music by DJ Mr. Dibbs
7:30pm: Slam Poetry by Marc Smith and the Chicago Poetry Ensemble

Event is free and open to the public. Snacks and refreshments provided.
