DESCRIPTION
Elephant Room Gallery is proud to present “You, Me and Everyone Else”, their largest group exhibition ever, opening June 11th at their new Bridgeport gallery. Curated by Elephant Room owner and photographer, Kimberly Atwood, this group portrait show includes 19 Chicago-based artists exhibiting for the first time together inside the vast gallery space at C.C.’s Art Garage, formerly an auto repair facility.


Portraiture is an art form that can be exceptionally intimate and raw, depending on how the artist chooses to portray their subject. Our fascination with ourselves and other people runs deep as we strive to be the best versions of ourselves while investing in relationships with others. “You, Me and Everyone Else” is an exercise in this idea as the artists have been asked to include a portrait accompanied by a personal description inspired by the subject, their relationship to the subject, or their thoughts on the resulting concept. The exhibition includes mixed media, painting and photography and each piece of writing will be included in the installation. The narrative behind each work is a valuable next step in learning more about who is depicted in the piece and the artist’s own relationship to that subject. 

Artwork can speak for itself but how does the viewer’s experience evolve when they have a narrative present? How important is it to you to hear directly from the artist? Exhibiting artists include Jennifer Cronin, Matt Manisalco, Amanda Joy Calobrisi, Joyce Polance, Jaime Foster, Nicholas Nickleby Johnson, Cydney M. Lewis, Lindsey Claire Newman, Rine Boyer, Cesar Conde, Christie Chew-Wallace, Phillip Scott, Anna Murphy, Andy Bellomo, Chantala Kommanivanh, Angela Mejia, Keelan McMorrow, Rahmaan Statik and Kimberly Atwood.
