Vernacular Representations
Performance: 7pm

Vernacular Representations is an exhibition of artists that interrogate the sometimes delicate and often permeable boundaries between the personal in public space. An interest in performative actions and rituals that establish a space as private or public, the peculiar nature of collecting, the body, and a denial of the domestic form the crux of their work.

This intervention is in response to the site of New Capital, a personal space rendered public.

Artists: Rashayla Marie Brown, Jedediah Johnson, and Tony Lewis

This exhibition is curated by Allison Glenn.


The exhibition 24HRS/25DAYS celebrates transformations, the work that all of us have yet to produce, and everything that is not yet known.

The exhibition includes individual works, performances, classes, dinners, as well as other exhibitions, and many forms to be developed. The exhibition is curated through careful scheduling, but is open to the public for intervention.

24HRS/25DAYS begins at 11:59 pm November 16, 2012 and will be open for 24 hours a day running through 11:59 pm December 12, 2012. During this time, the exhibition will flux continuously between preparations and presentations, while individuals flux continuously as artist, audience, curator/ dramaturge/ press/ pure being/ etc.

Audience may visit anytime to view and/or participate in the process of the exhibition. We will be documenting the show as it evolves and transforms, all of which will be represented in its own chapter in the 2013 catalogue that documents the activity at NEW CAPITAL (and activity networked to NEW CAPITAL) over the past 2 years.

Details on the exhibition’s programming can be found on the website,

This is the closing celebration of NEW CAPITAL’s two year project of regular scheduled programming at the physical location, 3114 W. Carroll, Chicago, IL. 60612.
