Opening September 13, 2012: organized for the HF Johnson Gallery of Art at Carthage College by independent guest curator, writer, and former Assistant Director of The Renegade Craft Fair, Danny Orendorff: All Good Things Become Wild & Free is a recalcitrant and expansive showcase of emerging and established artistic practices that pleasurably delight and flagrantly experiment with form, color, material, and content.
Unconventional materiality, hand-wrought entities, and non-normative forms compose this exhibition of contemporary artworks whose makers engage themes explored within current identity-based theories of culture, art, and the everyday. Set loose from hierarchical classifications of art, craft, and design, All Good Things Become Wild and Free is an unrestrainedly chromatic showcase of outrage, Eros, affection, and irreverence. Emphasizing an eclectic cartel of artistic strategies and practices, this exhibition features 19 artists working in ceramics, Claymation, drawing and illustration, furniture-design, installation, painting, performance, photography, sculpture, textile, video, and ‘zines.
