Patric McCoy: Take My Picture

50 black and white and color photographs from 1980s Black gay Chicago when McCoy traveled around Chicago on his bike. From the lakefront to the Loop, McCoy found no shortage of Black men who wanted their picture taken. Over a ten-year period, he shot thousands of images at his subjects' request. HIV/AIDS hit Black men especially hard. Thousands would die before the end of the decade, including many of McCoy's friends, lovers-and subjects. Take My Picture is an altar to those lost. The exhibition is curated by Juarez Hawkins, artist, educator, and curator
