Sebastian Campos
Principal, THE MISSION, Chicago | Houston

Sebastian Campos is a second generation collector- his family has been acquiring important Latin American artworks for the last thirty years, during several of which Sebastian was managing the collection. His father’s influence, as well as his time at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, led Sebastian to begin collecting contemporary art, first with pop art prints and later shifting his focus to artists of his own generation.  In 2010, he opened THE MISSION, a contemporary art gallery in Chicago and expanded to a second location in Houston in the fall of 2013. In many ways the opening of THE MISSION was a natural progression of both his family history and personal experiences.

Her recent project with FormContent, It’s Moving from I to It unfolded as a performative script within a nomadic structure testing formats of production and distribution.

As a researcher and writer, she worked for several film and television productions, artists’ publications. She graduated from the MFA Curating Programme at Goldsmiths College (UK) and was one of the curators selected for the 3rd International Curator Course at the Gwangju Bienniale (KR) in 2011.

Bryan Volta's exhibition, Mythology of Masculinity, runs Thursday, June 19th - July 19th at the corner of State and Adams in the Chicago Loop.  

Mythology of Masculinity:

The repetition of abuse during physical training inspired the photographs and objects from Mythology of Masculinity; they are visual and physical manifestations of the changes induced by aggression. The intent of this project was to convey that aggression and strain placed on a particular object by manipulating its physical appearance and allowing its aesthetics to conform to the abuse it endures. The sculptures compress the phenomenon of training, apparatus, and boxer into one entity. The photographs attempt to capture specific elements that convey the brutality associated with physical improvement, specifically for an improved appearance of power.
