DESCRIPTION

Living By Example is an exhibition focusing on the continued rise and growing popularity of Chicago-based artist-run apartment exhibitions.  For this exhibition Edra Soto and Dan Sullivan are creating a structure within the confines of a traditional gallery space.  The Franklin, the name given to the structure, is being built in the form of a modern shed which, once the exhibition is complete, will reside in the backyard of Soto and Sullivan's home and will act as their version of the common "apartment exhibition" space.

The exhibition installed in The Franklin will consist of work from Soto and Sullivan's private collection.  Artists included in the exhibition are Jeroen Nelemans, Ryan Richey, Ryan Travis Christian, Molly Zuckerman-Hartung, Deborah Boar dman, Dana Carter, Kirsten Leenaars, Zachary Cahill, Ann Toebbe, Melissa Oresky, Alberto Alguilar, Corrine Halbert, Meg Duguid, Heidi Norton, Paul Nudd, Maria Gaspar, Mindy Rose-Schwartz, Erik Brown, Catie Olsen, and Michael Rea. 

On Thursday February 23rd, Catie Olsen and Erik Brown will be giving a talk entitled "Domestic Spaces and Alternative Venues" and Edra Soto and Dan Sullivan will follow with "Artists as Collectors."  All events take place in the gallery and are free and open to the public.
