For being an exhibition themed around motivation and perseverance, I left feeling down from “Hang In There,” a show currently on view at Bridgeport’s Co-Prosperity Sphere and curated by photographer and conceptual artist Jason Lazarus. While I trust that Lazarus’ own motivations were in the right place, the show itself hung as an explosion of labor and positivity toward no discernible end. Here were forty-five artists exhibiting works of all sorts, each expressing or reflecting their own commit... [more]

On March 28, 2011, a small crowd gathered outside 1230 North Burling, better known as Cabrini-Green. It was an eclectic mix that witnessed this eventon Chicago’s north side: neighbors, former residents, security, journalists and art enthusiasts.  This last set of onlookers are of course not commonly found hanging around an inner-city housing project, but they turned out for the lighting of Project Cabrini Green, a public art installation conceived by artist and educator Jan Tichy. Tichy's proje...

Tichy's practice has expanded to include exhibition design, designing "Moholy... [more]

Jan Tichy at Richard Gray Gallery - Chicago October 9th, 2009 - January 9th, 2010
Posted 11/16/09

        It’s rare that an economic downturn has an 'upside' but without the downturn Jan Tichy’s show “Installations” for Richard Gray Gallery would not have been possible. Mr. Tichy’s video installations are literally embedded in the vacant offices and abandoned conference rooms of an entire floor in the Hancock Building. Stepping off of an elevator into an empty and dimly lit level of corporate offices is already an evocative enough experience on its own and is heightened by what Mr. Tichy’s video... [more]

      Paper, a seemingly basic material that lends itself easily to a variety of functional applications, becomes the focal point for a new exhibition at Ticho House. In Paperworks, it morphs from a neutral and passive role into a meaningful creative medium with particular attributes that are central to the creation of uniquely individual works of art. The exhibition presents works by contemporary artists, including Hilla Ben Ari,Yifat Bezalel, Jan Tichy, Shaul Zemach and Maya Zack, who use... [more]
