The Zapatistas have a saying that "nothing is impossible for those who can see the invisible. Something can be invisible until you make it into something that has shape and form." Since 2014, Monica Trinidad has supported social justice movements in Chicago through her narrative centered illustrations, and created an artist collective (For the People Artists Collective) to deepen the sustainability of Chicago's grassroots movements' visibility. In this exhibition, Monica and other artists will challenge our perceptions of what is possible when we demand the impossible for a better world.
