Brandon Alvendia



Brandon Alvendia is a Chicago-based artist, curator, writer, publisher and educator. His interdisciplinary practice playfully engages spatial and social architectures to envision temporary utopias. He is the founder of multiple Chicago alternative spaces artLedge (2004-2007), BEN RUSSELL (2009-2011), The Storefront (2010-2014), and art-publishing house Silver Galleon Press (2008-present). His work supports the efforts of local and international artists by creating platforms for experimentation, discussion and collaboration. He is a graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (BFA ‘03) and University of Illinois at Chicago (MFA ‘07). Alvendia regularly performs and exhibits around North America collaborating with various artist-run initiatives. In 2013, he organized a three-act community-oriented experimental dramatic work, Chambre d’Amis, around the theme of place and memory for the Institute of American Art in Portland, ME. He was also the recipient of a 2010 Propellor Fund Grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation. This summer he collaborated with Chicago Artist Writers and Locust Projects Miami to publish a review from a mass of participants under a single, anonymous name. Alvendia continues to publish through Silver Galleon Press, which he expanded into a workshop to focus on its performative and communal aspects. His summers are spent working as a Visiting Artist Coordinator for ACRE residency in Wisconsin. He has recently contributed to the publications The Economy Magazine (US) and ISSUE 28 (CA).
