  "Communication is Overrated" In this age of information, this exhibit questions the benefit of “creating a dialog.” Featuring installations, paintings, printed materials and a large-scale wall painting, the exhibit explores the power and limitations of the act of message, and the effect of information bombardment It’s been described as the age of information, supported by a belief system that if we could just “start a dialog,” all our problems would be solved. But is that true? What... [more]

        The idea: art critics pair with artists, and let the artists have the final word. "Response: Art and the Art of Criticism," was curated by the well-respected group Chicago Art Critics Association (CACA), with Polly Ulrich, Claire Wolf Krantz and Janina Ciezadlo as the "point people" for I Space Gallery. Expectations were high for the eighteen art critics and artists who were featured simultaneously. But the bloggers and reviews weren't lavishing praise. Wrote Claudine Ise, of art... [more]

  "The bartender presses a button, and just like that the rain stops." -Barry Yourgrau, A Man Jumps Out of an Airplane     Olafur Eliasson's show at the MCA has two types of artworks: objects and experiences.  The first experience is the yellow-lighted hall (Room for one colour, 1997)which seems at first like a crushing disappointment, Dan Flavin Part Deux. Then you realize that everyone around you is in greyscale. You are in a living black and white movie. The lady with the red blazer? Grey.... [more]

        "Art is not eternal."- Tom Wolfe, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test "For A Limited Time Only" is an exhibit of ephemeral art curated by Olga Stefan. It showcases seven works that will all change substantially during the three-week run of the show. Shawn Stucky created an edible catalog. Jess Witte created birdseed doilies, which will get scattered or eaten by birds. Annie Heckman stacked glow-in-the-dark bones which could collapse like a house of cards, Marci Rubin's ice-filled c...

  FLATFILEgalleries looked spectacular, even from outside, on opening night.  Lucy Slivinski's Inspired Terrain sculptures are generally over seven feet tall and are lighted, spiney, colorful and a combination of these things.  Although I have grown truly weary of art made with recycled materials, her craftsmanship is refined enough to balance out the crudeness of the found materials.  In Ornament, (see poorly-lit photo below), chipped reflector lights dangle like gemstones in a flurry of bent wir...

In anticipation of the Southern Graphics Council (a major printmaking convention hosted by Columbia College in late March), Packer Schopf is hosting the group print show "Ce n'est pas un spectacle de caracteres (This is not a print show)." But, ah ha, it is a print show.  It has a collection of prints from the artists of White Wings Press and a dozen other print artists. Two things that stood out: Rattail, 2007, by Matthew Schommer and William Strugis features a mouse and snake and boy with a hole... [more]

  In the lower level of Packer Schopf is an exhibit of the Erector-set art of Michael Thompson, who is most well known for his delightfully subversive fradulent postage stamps. His famous stamps not only portray colorful depictions of everything from Smallpox to genitalia, but have actually been sent through the mail and received the stink eye from the federal government. From there, he's made the natural transition to building replicas of bridges out of Erector sets. I have the upmost respect for... [more]

I Space is an edgy River North gallery that has three gallery spaces and houses the type of experimental work usually seen in the West Loop. As the title describes, Dimension and Typography: A Survey of Letterforms in Space and Time features textwork ranging from Andrew Byrom's Grab Me, which spells the word "PLAY" in stainless steel handrails, to a Ariel Malka's The Javascriptorium, a real-time computer program that creates a mountainous landscape from a Hebrew prayer. Clever artworks abou... [more]

Curator Kathleen Judge and the Viaduct Theater have mounted a large-scale effort at the Chicago Tourism Center called The Exquisite City.  Over 70 artists contributed to this imaginary "City of Carboard."  Thirty city blocks installed on a grid; 12-by-12-inch dioramas or "windows" displayed on the gallery walls; and an audio installation featuring music and sounds recorded on Chicago streets make up the exhibition. One piece that stands out for artistic merit is Chris Lin's George Jones Clouds (c... [more]
