Chirality: Defiant Mirror Images
Curated by Charissa N. Terranova
Gray Matters Gallery
October 24-December 12, 2015

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 24, 6-9pm

Artists – Ellen Levy, Jeff Gibbons, Luke Harnden, Trent Straughan, Alan and Michael Fleming, and Steve Oscherwitz.

Art meets science in Chirality: Defiant Mirror Images. This exhibition plays out the unique agency of chiral forms – their asymmetrical symmetry, how they look alike and act differently, and their ability to spin light out into space (or optical activity) – when introduced to the realm of art.  Invoking “agency” in terms of the dynamics of chiral form, the exhibition sets in relief new models of form-making, individuation, and social action.

Making an Entrance
June 25 – July 26, 2015

Opening Reception: 7-10pm, Thursday, June 25th

LVL3 and Robert Blumenthal present Making an Entrance. Making an Entrance highlights sixteen contemporary artists who are making an international impact with their creative practice. Often seen as a theatrical action involving light and shadow, making an entrance suggests a significant character entering a scene in an attention grabbing manner. The importance of the character’s entrance can be heightened with the dramatic use of silhouette in order for a stark reveal. This exhibition reinterprets a subject’s entrance into a frame, which reflects upon the artists’ own entrances both inside and out of a gallery setting.

Imperfect Symmetry: A Compendium Curated by Sara Black and Karsten Lund
A + D Gallery, Columbia College, Chicago, IL
Opening Reception: October 3, 2013, 5-8 PM

Imperfect Symmetry: A Compendium is an exhibition in search of a concept—or more precisely, a phenomenon that seems to exist in the world but not in the dictionary. Fourteen artists or collaborative groups were invited to explore manifestations of “imperfect symmetry.” In the space between two more familiar conditions, symmetry and asymmetry, something else takes shape in meaningful ways. By developing new projects or proposing existing works, the artists put forward their own interpretations of what imperfect symmetry might be and what it means.

In a reversal from the more common approaches to a thematic group show, this exhibition is an effort of collective thinking, working through an idea rather than starting with something fully formed. Imperfect symmetry might be understood as a moment of tension as symmetry falls apart or fails to coalesce; or as a permanent state, observable in aspects of the natural world; or perhaps as a metaphor for various human desires or habits as we try to understand one another or make contact as individuals or cultures.

Together the artists’ wide ranging artworks and performances amount to a compendium of sorts: an inventory of examples or an anthology of demonstrations that gradually build toward a more complete view. The exhibition is also accompanied by a printed publication (the more traditional format for a compendium), which features additional material by all the participants. In this printed form, the publication is both an extension and an imperfect mirror of the exhibition in the gallery space.

A program of performances* will take place on October 25, 8pm at Defibrillator Performance Are Gallery, 1136 N. Milwaukee Avenue www.dfbrl8r.org

OPENING: 6-10pm, Saturday, June 29

ON VIEW: June 29 – July 21, 2013

LVL3 Gallery
1542 North Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, IL 60622

2 of a kind is a group show consisting of eight pairs of collaborating artist. The exhibitions focus is to review the goals of the gallery through ideas of collaboration. The significance of collaboration lies in the process where two or more people work together to realize shared goals. Each pair of artists were asked to submit two collaborative pieces to be displayed during the exhibition. In addition to the work shown in the gallery, LVL3 will also be premiering a permanent mural installation on the back of the building by Chicago-based artists Ryan Travis Christian and Mike Paro; this mural was partially funded by the Covenant Project Grant. 2 of a kind looks at the rich history of the Chicago arts community and how it continues to be an innovative place for growth and creativity.

GDBD presents: Weird Dude Energy
Heaven Gallery
OPENING: 7-10pm, Friday, June 14

ON VIEW: June 14 – July 7, 2013

Heaven Gallery
1550 North Milwaukee, Chicago Illinois 60622

WEIRD DUDE ENERGY is a survey of artist dudes who cultivate the intersection of elegance and Dudeliness. Coursing between the tiles of the weight room’s floor and pulling the foam through a beer bong’s tube there is an energy. In WEIRD DUDE ENERGY an unease transmits through the works like the dissonant proportions cursing the limbs of pubescent boys. Stained with the trauma of puberty WEIRD DUDE ENERGY strikes a balance between restraint and total release. GDBD is drawn to the complicated and embarrassing gestures of Dudehood. Bask in the glory of this Dudery and join GDBD in inviting the WEIRD DUDE ENERGY to wash over us like an enveloping mist of AXE. Can you abide?

PUSH IT. REAL. GOOD.
Movement Research Festival Spring 2012
165 W. 86th Street (West Park Presbyterian Church, corner of Amsterdam Avenue.)
6-9pm, Friday June 1st

*We will be performing a durational peice throughout the evening between other performance events*

“Bring on 2012 with its four horsemen and cult sacrifices. If this is the last of the great mortality myths, let’s push it to a real scorched earth explosion. We bring you a new spin on an old-school anthem: Push it. Real. Good. Reckoning with the end of the world-as-we-know-it, we are faced with the competing impulses of fight or flight. It’s time to push it past the limits of what we know and challenge our bodies and minds to test the boundaries of form and action. We’re in genre-bending terrain. Performance is happening everywhere, and as a result critical questions are emerging about the future of live work. What is the measurement of discipline and energy that is necessary for our work? How do we measure value in the midst of economic ruin? We have to keep pushing with and against these questions to keep going and keep making it happen. Listen up! We’re talking about aesthetic polyamory. We present dance, sound, writing, visual art, installation and video as autonomous forms with tendencies toward intermingling. Not just intermingling, but gettin’ up in it. Not just gettin’ up in it, but going hog wild. Push it. Real. Good.”

Spatial Reasoning
Happy Collaborationists
1254 N Noble Chicago, IL 60642
April 21st-May 9th 2012

OPENING RECEPTION: April 21st, 6-10PM

ACRE and HAPPY COLLABORATIONISTS are pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Alan and Michael Fleming. Known for their physical and often playful approach to making art, in this exhibition the Flemings explore ways we relate to the world through our bodies. Using themselves as a tool for measurement and comparison, the work on display reveals a phenomenological investigation of space, place and experience.

This exhibition will include new photography and video work made by the Fleming brothers over the past year. Being shown for the first time in the United States, one of the central works on display for this exhibition is a video shot on location in Denmark. Returning to their embodied practice of relating to architectural spaces, the artists present us with a unique glimpse of various engagements with buildings and sites around Copenhagen. As an international hub for architecture and design, the city provides a dynamic backdrop for the Flemings’ performative interventions.

Alan and Michael Fleming are twin brothers who have been making art together over the past 7 years. They attended graduate school as a collaborative and each received an MFA in Studio from the Performance Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2010. Their work ranges from performance, to video, to sculpture. Their recent solo exhibition, GAME ON, at threewalls presented a poignant and humorous body of work that the artists made while living apart for a year. In 2012 they were selected for the Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) Program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts and as a result their work will be included in the 2013 Bronx Biennial. Currently, they are both based in Brooklyn.

OPENING RECEPTION: MARCH 9, 6-9PM

ARTIST TALK: APRIL 21, 2PM

GAME ON is a solo exhibition of our collaborative work, which is part of the ThreewallsSOLO program. Part of the exhibition will be comprised of work that we made while living apart in two different cities for the past year (while Alan was living in New York and Michael was living in Chicago). These works include reflections on distance, communication, “psychic” games, material trace of collaboration, etc. and the rest of the exhibition will include new work that we have been making since reuniting in New York after our temporary hiatus.

January-March

Artist in the Marketplace, Bronx Museum of the Arts

We were selected to participate in the winter/spring 2012 session of AIM and as a result our work will be included in the 2013 Bronx Biennial.

“The Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program was established in 1980 with the goals of providing networking opportunities for emerging artists residing in the New York metropolitan area and of introducing their work to a greater audience. Every year a panel of five arts professionals is assembled by the Bronx Museum to select thirty-six artists to participate in AIM. The program comprises a series of thirteen weekly seminars. AIM sessions are led by a faculty of specialists and address areas of practical concern to artists including: career management and gallery representation; exhibition and public art opportunities; grant writing, copyright law, and marketing. AIM culminates with a biannual exhibition organized by a team of guest curators, and an accompanying catalogue.”

REVIEWS

Here is a nice review of one of our works from “The Joke is Irresistible” Exhibition currently on view at the Sullivan Galleries. ArtSlant Review: “Welcome Back” by Abraham Ritchie

Also a brief mention in this Time Out Chicago review of the “Process in Product: Work from Summer Studio” Exhibition.
Time Out Chicago Review: “Process in Product” by Lauren Weinberg

August 28-October 16

The Joke is Irresistible

THE JOKE IS IRRESISTIBLE
August 28–October 16
Reception: Friday, September 10, 4:30–7:00 p.m.
Sullivan Galleries, 33. S. State Street

“The Joke is Irresistible challenges various tropes of masculinity and the gendered gaze. By borrowing from the feminist tradition and applying the same tools to questions of masculinity, an area that remains largely unexplored in gender studies scholarship, some featured artists parody stereotypes of masculinity while others literalize them. All are serious considerations of what it means to engender masculinity in a way that broadens how we understand gendered associations in the world around us. Curated by Joe Iverson (MA 2011), curatorial assistant, Department of Exhibitions. Artists include: Christopher Bradley, Andy Cahill, Jason Conny, Anthony Creedin, Alan and Michael Fleming, Joe Grimm, Millie Kapp and Isabella Ng, Mik Kastner, and Janet Lin.”

PROCESS IN PRODUCT: WORK FROM SUMMER STUDIO
August 28–October 2
Reception: Friday, September 10, 4:30–7:00 p.m.
Sullivan Galleries, 33. S. State Street

“This exhibition features new work created by artists in Summer Studio—a residency program that turned the Sullivan Galleries into a site of making, and brought together artists Chicago and beyond into a temporary creative community. The studio offers artists a time to take stock of things a shift direction, carry out plans long dreamed about and make them real, and move through the sometimes circuitous modes of conversation and coexistence to find a personal path. Now invited to open their processes for public engagement, the outcomes—the products of their summer residency in Sullivan—are on view here.”

August 28-October 16

CONSTRUCTION SITE: IDENTITY MADE MATERIAL
Boomerang Space, Sharp Building, 37 South Wabash Avenue, Ground Floor
Curated by Becca Schlossberg

“This exhibition brings together artists who attempt to make material the complicated, fractured, or multiple identities of themselves or others. Their strategies test the potential of text, object, act, symbol, pattern etc. to render a coherent identity legible to the viewer, or to resolve or solidify their own identities in the process. Through varying approaches, these artists challenge the boundaries and possibilities of their chosen media, and their results suggest various conclusions to the question of how complex or unresolved identities are constructed in the process of making.”

August 2-22

We were Artists-in-Residence at the Summer Studio Exhibition at the Sullivan Galleries until the end of August. We used this time to create new work, develop current projects and get to know the community of other artists working at the gallery for the summer. The work we created will be on display for the Product in Process: Work from Summer Studio Exhibition.

Artists and Residents is a series of art projects taking place at private homes in Chicago. As a critical response to the current proliferation of apartment galleries in Chicago, Artists and Residents intends to expand the “social circles” of apartment gallery without losing its sense of intimacy by having Chicago residents of various backgrounds and professions as the hosts for the projects. Through these exhibitions, the concept of apartment gallery is transformed from a fixed site associated with an artist or curator’s home to a discursive arena, stretching over the city from Uptown to Hyde Park, from Lakeview to Garfield Park. Moreover, in these exhibitions there will not be any pre-made art to be brought to the house. Instead, all works will be conceptualized from the house in response to the space and the everyday life happening inside.

Feng Shui is on view until March 28th, by appointment by contacting Brittany:412-613-0993
