The singularity of identity in each of Pyle’s drawings takes us to a very different place. On the surface, his cartoon-like characters seem anything but beautiful. Humor and playfulness are a first reaction. But his subjects do not simply exist only to entertain. With their epidermis stripped away, turned inside out, we behold visages of a sinew, muscle and bone reveal. Pyle lays bare the co...   [more]

More than 19 years ago, Catherine Edelman Gallery moved out of its second floor gallery to the lower level of 300 W. Superior Street, doubling its footprint. In 2005 it expanded again, adding an additional 1200 sq. feet of exhibition space. Now in its 26th year, CEG is running out of storage space. To help alleviate this problem, we’ve decided to mount Framed & Ready, a rotation of gallery...   [more]

Shane Huffman is swimming to the Moon. If ignorance of the laws of nature is the basis of superstition, there's an element of deliberate superstition in Huffman's willful revision of cosmic order. Huffman reinvests interplanetary space, drained of mystery by the imposed order of cosmological description, with something "extra and other." Using photography as an investigative process that works with three c...   [more]

From studio critique, a mode of conversation about art works, Mers has evolved a generative, productive method of talking about other issues as well, by diagramming them onto her Fractal 3-Line Matrix. In this exhibition, she presents diagrams of conversations with artists about their work, visualizations of arts ecologies and first iteration of Face Cloud, a cooperation with programmer Robert Woodley....   [more]

Miller & Shellabarger use gunpowder and black oil sunflower seeds to outline their bodies and hands. Both materials hold immense amounts of energy, even when distilled into diminutive containers, and are utilized for their rich metaphorical connotation. One is used to feed the flame. The other is left as feed. Each poured out to trace their forms, each consumed and gone like the bodies they once...   [more]

The Painter’s Other Library is a meditation on silence. The quiet of the library is evoked in the paintings as well as the history of the building and the galleries that house the exhibit. Themes in the work are also drawn from research into the Holocaust and the destructive program of the Nazis. While none of the work in the show explicitly states any of these histories, the formal choices o...   [more]

In the East Wing, Corbett vs. Dempsey presents an intimate show of three works by California artist Roy De Forest. One of the foremost artists associated with the Funk movement of the 1960s, De Forest's playful, dense works have clear resonances with contemporaneous Chicago painting and drawing. This exhibition focuses on De Forest's brilliant works on paper from the early 1980s.   [more]

Driven by impulse, and created with hope. Anxious qualities are captured, and movement is frozen. A constructed environment is created. History, site, and material are apparent yet unfamiliar. Reflect and imagine with curiosity the unknown. Luke Armitstead (B. 1989 Seattle) is a sculptor, painter, ceramicist and designer. He received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011, and...   [more]

Using ready-to-assemble components from the global home-furnishings store Ikea, Jeff Carter repurposes them into architectural models that are simultaneously familiar and a bit off-kilter. His constructions explore the formal vocabulary of Bauhaus architecture while also considering the dilemma of modern material culture: can mass-produced consumer goods be “good” design? Which is more...   [more]
