Chicago: June, 2011 - Rachel Niffenegger made a name for herself in the late twenty aughts painting beaten up, violently rendered heads in grey and pink inks and oranges on paper. Since then, she’s entered Northwestern’s Masters of Fine Arts Program and has brought her figuration off the page and into space, while smoothly strengthening her work’s connection to Chicago’s history of painting people with body problems. For Niffenegger, those problems can be pretty severe, even severed - dead and cr... [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...
