As I walked up the stairs into the darkened gallery of Alderman Exhibitions’ new loft space in an old warehouse on Randolph Street, I heard a long hissss and looked up to see a fuse burning in a shaky frame.  I had walked in on the screening of Long Fuse, 2012, by Robert Chase Heishman and Brendan Meara. I perched on the top step and watched the fuse burn over snow, ice, grass, wood, concrete and soil. When was the bam, or kaboom, or, my favorite, kablooey!? When will there be resolution to thi...

Alderman Exhibitions is one of Chicago's favorite galleries and one of the city's most innovative. Recently Alderman relocated and renovated their new digs into a clean, sophisticated gallery space where they are presenting an exhibition of the artists they represent. Daniel Bauer's two photographs of a dust-laden tree and modern architecture are quiet standouts that draw the viewer in with their enigmatic questions. The opening of the new space featured Robert Chase Heishman and Brendan Meara's featu... [more]

Time Out Chicago profiles Alderman Exhibitions, Hinge Gallery and the Mission Three new Chicago galleries promote local artists and more.  By Lauren Weinberg We should pour out a PBR for the West Loop’s late, lamented gallery-bookshop Golden Age, which closed in November. Yet 2011 was the first year since the recession that Chicago didn’t hemorrhage exhibition spaces. Moreover, the city gained some venues that are notable for their generous visions of what a commercial gallery can... [more]

Raquel's Exhibition strikes a note

I'm not an art critic but I was really taken by Raquel's work and the way it was shown at Alderman Exhibitions.  The best way I have to describe her work is as peaceful and charming as the artist herself.  Talking to her about her grandfather's creative work and her immersion in it was such a revelation that we can learn from our ancestors in new and different ways.  The exhibition space itself is filled with the  exuberance of youth with a different twist on your usual gallery.  The bicycle sh...

The inaugural exhibition at Alderman Exhibitions, located at 350 North Ogden Avenue, opened on January 15th with work by Chicago artist and University of Illinois-Chicago (UIC) MFA candidate, Raquel Landensack.  The distinct industrial space,storage unit turned gallery, inhabited by Alderman pairs well with the understated collection of twelve photographs from Ladensack’s current body of work.  The curation of the newly configured space is carefully restrained, and compliments the subtle beauty...
