Gage Gallery at Roosevelt University

The Gage Gallery at Roosevelt University is "Chicago’s premier space for showcasing contemporary critical social photo-documentary" (Newcity Art). The Gallery exhibits work that is consonant with the mission of the University and its ideals of social justice. It serves the academic goals of the University by hosting numerous public lectures, panel discussions, and symposia, which allow groups to learn about, and discuss, the important social issues of our time. Gallery exhibitions have explored themes including immigration, incarceration, gun violence, terrorism, mental illness, LGBTQ activism, and poverty.

About the Gallery

The Gallery serves the greater photographic community by being one of only a handful of galleries in the United States to exhibit documentary photography for the sole purpose of education. Past exhibits have included nationally and internationally known photographers including Eugene Richards, Noor’s Nina Berman and Jon Lowenstein, Edmund Clark, Milton Rogovin, VII’s Jessica Dimmock, and important emerging photographers. Opening receptions often feature an artist talk by the photographer. These talks take attendees behind the scenes providing insight on exhibited photos, the photographic process, and often a preview of the photographer’s upcoming projects.
