Material Assumptions: Paper as Dialogue



In June I am participating in the exhibition Material Assumptions: Paper as Dialogue

Material Assumptions: Paper as Dialogue
June 16 – August 11, 2012

OPENING RECEPTION, JUNE 15: 4:00–7:00 p.m.
ROUNDTABLE EVENT: Group Effort: Hand Papermaking, Collaboration, and Contemporary Art
6:30–8:00 p.m.

Curated by Jessica Cochran, Elizabeth Isakson-Dado, Hannah King, and C.J. Mace

This exhibition is about the discursive ways that artists approach paper as a medium, technology, and tool. Hand papermaking is a process that begins with the raw material of pulp and ends in sculpture, mixed media, and installation. To that end, this exhibition asks us to consider the utility of paper at the site of interdisciplinary contemporary arts and crafts. Elevating the primary role of handmade paper as a conceptual and formal “supporting partner” in contemporary art itself, Material Assumptions points to the versatility, nuance and subtlety of handmade paper as medium.

Works from Dieu Donné by:
Jessica Stockholder, Glenn Ligon, Richard Tuttle, Chuck Close, Polly Apfelbaum, Sonya Blesofsky, Mel Bochner, Ian Cooper, William Kentridge, Beth Campbell, Nina Bovasso

Newly commissioned works by: Dan Devening, Deborah Boardman, Ian Schneller, Annica Cuppetelli & Christobal Mendoza, Matthew Schlian, Kate McQuillen, Niall McClelland, Anna Tsantir, Daniel Luedtke , Zoe Nelson, Julie Schenkelberg, Susan Goethel-Campbell

For L'Unite

I am participating in the threewalls 2012 CSA.

threewalls is pleased to announce the current round of our popular Community Supported Art program, Spring 2012 edition, featuring editioned artwork by Elijah Burgher, Derek Chan, Dan Devening, Carson Fisk-Vittori, Dianna Frid, Kelly Kaczynski, Betsy Odom, and Bernard Williams.I am participating the Three Walls 2012 CSA by providing an edition.

Community-Supported Art Chicago is a twice-yearly art subscription service of locally produced art. Borrowing the model of Community-Supported Agriculture, where consumers invest in a local farm and get a monthly payout of fruits and vegetables, threewalls asks shareholders to invest directly in the arts community with that same mentality. CSA Chicago makes the process of collecting contemporary art affordable and accessible.

How it works: The program offers a reasonably priced way to support Chicago artists and receive limited edition contemporary artist projects in return. This season, the edition size is more limited: 30 pieces only. Shares cost $400 for a single share of 4 artworks and $850 for a family-size share of 8 artworks, including 2 tickets to threewalls spring gala (value $200.00). Subscribers receive signed and numbered artworks at two release events in late May and late June. Shares are a curated mix of mediums, disciplines and conceptual projects, each one will be unique.
