about

Dream Merchant is an exploration of Harold Washington’s mayoral campaigns in 1984 and 1987, revisiting his aspirations through memorabilia and ephemera materials. Commemorating the 30th anniversary of his passing, clips from campaign ads and sampled speeches are interwoven into a narrative collages of Washington’s vision and what he represented to the people of Chicago. In today’s socio-political climate, we consider Chicago’s cultural history in social activism and musical movements to reimagine the American Dream.
