DESCRIPTION

Objet Petit A is an exhibition and auction of artist-created piñatas at Spoke, a non-profit project space located in the West Loop gallery district of Chicago, Illinois. The show runs Wednesday August 26th through Friday September 11. Auction winners will be invited to either keep or destroy their piñata at a public performance spectacle on the evening of September 11. The auction will benefit both Spoke, and Chicago Rarities Orchard Project, an organization founded to establish community rare-fruit orchards in Chicago, and preserve open space. Piñatas by Abby Christensen & Emily Vanhoff, Ben Fain, Jose Lerma & Cristina Tufino, Michael Jones McKean, Tomas Moreno, Harriet Salmon, and Astri Swendsrud. Curated by Dayton Castleman and Matthew Dupont.
