Jake Myers grew up in the suburbs of Chicago playing sports,

working at an outlet mall and engaging in all of the mechanisms

of a spectacular hyper-competitive society. He was skeptical of 

this heteronormative upbringing but had no language or structure

to respond adeptly. Art school exposed Myers to people like Paulo

Freire, Guy Debord and various ways of critically responding to the

world. His work gratuitously merges art, athletics, heroics, existential

crisis, homoeroticism & heternomativity.
