Jory Drew is an artist and graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is concerned about how visual media supports social constructions and that this relationship is responsible for race, gender, and power inequalities. Through conflating the dichotomies between horror and desire, sex and death, beauty and monstrosity; I work to dismantle these ideologies through the fragmentation of photography, video, sculpture, and language. Jory is a Co-founder of F4F, a domestic venue in Little Village (Chicago) and a Co-organizer of Beauty Breaks, an intergenerational beauty and wellness workshop series for black people along the spectrum of femininity.
