Chicago Artists’ Coalition is pleased to present MEMORY ADDRESS, a two person exhibition featuring the work of HATCH Projects’ artists David Wittig and Jim Zimpel, and curated by Robyn Farrell. A data concept, Memory Address, refers to entry points for stored information. Generally used as a technical term in computing, the exhibition applies this concept to data that informs creative practice. Working across varying modes of material and process, Wittig and Zimpel mine personal histories to explore issues of accessibility. Inspired by Cold War iconography, Wittig abstracts the norms of recognition in an exercise to question the aesthetic attraction and inferred terror of military machines. Zimpel’s practice explores the literal and conceptual forms of social relationships. There will be an opening reception on Friday, May 11 from 6-9pm, and the exhibition will run through May 31, 2012.
