DESCRIPTION

Logan Square Chamber of Arts and Business Fundraiser, at the Crown Tap Room, October 21, 2010, featured artist, and curator Gabriel Patti, address the theme of "Curatorial Practice", and the "City As a Studio".

There is a well-established history of artists taking over empty shops for temporary exhibitions or community projects, and in the current economic downturn such activity is being actively supported both by local councils and artist networks. The aim of the Phantom Galleries is to examine changes in current curatorial production and to develop innovative displays in relation to these physical storefronts or virtual spaces.

This project is supported in part by FG Commercial Real Estate, Lauren Lowery, Emerald Inn and Guest House, Intimate Opera, Logan Square Chamber of Arts, Elastic Arts Foundation, Crowns, Murphy Hill Gallery, Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs Chicago Artists Month, Borderbend Arts Collective,

 

Chicago Artists Month

Throughout October, you are invited to meet hundreds of Chicago visual artists at exhibitions, workshops, open studios, tours, neighborhood art walks and more in venues across the city. Presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs in collaboration with more than 200 program partners, Chicago Artists Month aims to showcase the extraordinary talent and vibrancy of Chicago’s art community.

 

This year's theme, "The City as Studio,” explores the impact of the urban environment on Chicago artists and their work, and the contributions that artists make to the vitality of our city. The place where art is imagined and made, whether in a physical or virtual space, affects the idea, the process and the final product. And the art, once created, leaves a mark on the place it occupies. Chicago Artists Month 2010 looks at how the city influences art and artists, and how artists transform the city by contributing to civic dialogue and quality of life.
