> DESCRIPTION

In the off spacedevening projects + editions is excited to present the publication of six new editions by Chicago artists Aron Gent, Carrie Gundersdorf, Cody Hudson, Sofia Leiby, Josh Reames and Cody Tumblin. The exhibition opens on February 3rd with a reception for the artists from 4 – 7.

Shit is Real celebrates the gallery’s commitment to the publication of cutting edge editions and mulitples by artists working in all facets of every medium. Focusing on new multiples made specifically for the exhibition by Chicago artists Aron Gent, Carrie Gundersdorf, Cody Hudson, Sofia Leiby, Josh Reames and Cody Tumblin, Shit is Real suggests that editioned work has a rich and varied position in contemporary art. For the show, Aron Gent constructs lyrical wall pieces from strips cut from discarded photographic proofs produced at document, his digital press. Carrie Gundersdorf chose to edition two pieces from her immense collection of source images used in her paintings and drawings. Cody Hudson shows a set of six letterpress prints produced at the Colby Poster Prints in Los Angeles. Sofia Leiby offers a group of silk-screened monoprints riffing off a painting from her studio. Josh Reames once again shows his interest in exotic tourist culture by producing a beach towel printed with the phrase “Eternal Vacation.” Finally, emerging artist and SAIC student Cody Tumblin shows a beautiful hand-dyed and hand-cut suite of fabric pieces reminiscent of Mattise’s late cut paper works. Each edition in the group is numbered at 10 with 7 artist proofs; each artist received a full set from the series.
