Orion Martin and Hudson Harrington Berry: Minutes away from downtown

@ Monument 2

2007 N Point St, Chicago, IL 60647

Opening Saturday, August 7th, from 7PM - 10PM

On view through Sunday, August 15th

Minutes away from downtown pairs the paintings of artist Orion Martin with an ambitious installation of post-war furniture from the collection of design scholar Hudson Harrington Berry. This collaborative exhibition activates the domestic tradition of the art object, as well as the designed object, as a ponderous and slowly unfolding artifact that adds pleasure to the everyday, both ontologically and aesthetically. Minutes away from downtown enacts a marriage of the gallery and domestic space, which explores this long-held human desire to augment one’s environment with cultured beauty.

“Interiors curated without compromise are an intellectual satisfaction. They tell a story. They confer new understanding. They invoke our admiration. Interiors are ideas that you occupy- premium experiences.”
