Ellen Nielsen: Ultraviolets

@ The Plaines Project

1822 S Desplaines St

Opening Saturday, May 12th, from 7PM - 12AM

On view through Saturday, May 19th

The Plaines Project presents ULTRAVIOLETS: a solo exhibition of new work by Ellen Nielsen.

Ellen Nielsen is an interdisciplinary artist whose work includes sculpture, photography, performance, and video. She received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2008 and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011. Characterized by absurd humor and uncanny visual transformations, Nielsen’s diverse body of work explores the conventions of kitsch, femininity, and artificial nature. She lives and works in Chicago.

The opening reception will be held from 7 pm – 10 pm on Saturday, May 12, and will be followed by a basement afterparty with MTZ and DJ Jean Shorts.

The show will be up until Saturday, May 19. Gallery hours are by appointment. Please contact if you would like to see the show after the reception.
