Featured Artists Sampler
Our next show Chicago Style is fast approaching and features some immensely talented artists! This salon style group exhibition will feature 34 artists whose eclectic works reflects the nuanced and refined style of the stormy, husky and brawling city of big shoulders. Here’s a bite-sized sample of who’s hot on our list!
Jonothan Pivovar deals best with experiential subjects. Shooting in the vernacular, his projects capture contemporary views of a rambling sojourner, sequenced in poetic cadence between pages of visual narrative. He’s currently traveling the US by car, working on a number of projects and having a very nice time. Check out his blog to see where he is on his adventure, and (if you’re lucky) and meet up for coffee. He’ll be exhibiting 3 beautifully printed, hand bound zines for Chicago Style. Come get a copy at the opening reception, December 6th!
Clarissa Bonet photographs urban space with a lonely eye that’s akin to a Hopper painting. For Bonet, the city is the stage or the laboratory for exploring the physiological and emotional impact of the metropolis on the body. For this exhibition, Clarissa will be showing selections from her most recent project Dark City. These photographs examine the cityscape at night, where the twinkle of windows in the distance merge into a futuristic and celestial topography. Her project City Space was recently featured on CNN Photos.
Eileen Mueller and Jamie Steele first started collaborating on a curatorial project called GURL, DON’T BE DUMB in September of 2011. Their blog works to accumulate web based, feminine signifying images into the most playful of arenas commonly known as the Internet. They have since progressed to curating exhibitions in spaces all over the Chicago area. Their most recent show Weird Dude Energy mounted at Heaven Gallery in June of 2013 and offered a “survey of artist dudes who cultivate the intersection of elegance and Dudeliness.” (-GDBD) Alicia Eler for Hyperallergic wrote this spot-on essay about their blog back in May that we still keep reading. We’re really thrilled to see what they bring to the table at our next show. Don’t miss the hype on December 6th!
Stay tuned for more featured artists from Chicago Style next week!
