Mark Aguhar sits, with a sullen look on their face, draped in a pink sheet-come-dress and sitting in a patch of faux “snow” created out of scraps of what appears to be white paper. This image of Mark encapsulates, succinctly, so many theories about the performativity of (queer) affect. Mark’s look, which is funny, sad and moving all at once, is caught somewhere between despair and tantrum. This image reminds us how affects are contagious—how, as Sara Ahmed suggests, your feelings reproduce them... [more]

Posted 2/14/11

Gallery 400’s exhibition “Bless this Mess” grapples with questions surrounding the queer identity and its interconnection to feminism and do-it-yourself culture. Named for the cutesy-grandma phrase found in craft projects and needlepoint around the Midwest and elsewhere, “Bless this Mess” is an intimate show with a collaborative spirit and the artwork is similarly simultaneously playful and sincere. The community of artists and performers, mostly Chicago-based, work in radically different styles a... [more]

Western Exhibitions’ packed show “Heads on Poles” achieves almost inadvertently what most biennials regularly fail to do: gather together artists and artworks that can be seen as representing common artistic impulses under an interesting theme. Taking the title as the theme for the exhibition, the curators Paul Nudd and Scott Wolniak, Chicago-based artists themselves, gathered together over 60 artists who only received basic submission guidelines and then were free to create and interpret the them...

Future Shock by Alvin Toffler was a bestseller in the 1970s when it was published.  It has since been reprinted several times and translated into many different languages. At Green Lantern Gallery, the comical film based on the book is narrated by none other than Orson Wells and screens in an under-a-stairwell cubbyhole in the exhibition.  In the first five or so minutes of the film, “future shock” is summarized several times as “too much change in too short a period of time.” It’s...
