This summer, the Sullivan Galleries presents Summer Studio. Transforming the gallery into artists' working space, a place of public presentation into one of process, Summer Studio is a rare chance for artists to share in the company-and energy-of others, while sharing the resources of this institution. Artists-in-residence come from Chicago and beyond to use the galleries to explore diverse and ambitious projects that engage discussions and practices that are particular to the studio. Launching new collaborations for SAIC, Summer Studio is also organized with threewalls, a Chicago institution dedicated to increasing the city's cultural capital by cultivating contemporary art practice and discourse. The general public will be invited to engage in Summer Studio through programming that opens up artists' practice for consideration, discussion, and participation. For more details, see below.
Artists-in-residence include: Tanya Fleisher, Alan and Michael Fleming, Elise Goldstein, Georgia Kotretsos, Diego Leclery, Adia Millet, Jennifer Mills, John Riepenhoff, Shane Aslan Selzer, Miller & Shellabarger, Cauleen Smith, and Marjorie Welish. The residents will also include Bad At Sports, founded in 2005 by Duncan MacKenzie and Richard Holland, as well as Still Action, a curatorial team comprised of Libby O'Bryan and Elissa Papendick.
Summer Studio is also part of "Studio Chicago," a yearlong collaborative project that focuses on the artist's studio. For more information visit: www.studiochicago.org.
