TRUNK SHOW is excited to announce its inaugural exhibition featuring a commissioned work by Eric Fleischauer. An artist, curator, and educator, Fleischauer’s work has been exhibited widely both locally and globally. In addition to his moving image work, he is known for his unique ability to distill complex social and cultural phenomena into legible, brainy one-liners. Fleischauer’s work for Trunk Show is a joke. A very good joke.
Selected exhibitions include: the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, Hyde Park Art Center, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Kunstmuseum Bonn and threewalls. This spring, his feature-length .gif film twohundredfiftysixcolors, made in collaboration with Jason Lazarus, premiered at the Gene Siskel Film Center. Eric Fleischauer lives and works in Chicago.
Join us at Noble Square’s landmark Eckhart Park, Sunday, September 15th from 4-6 PM for the affixing of Eric Fleischauer’s suburban fantasy. We’ll be jamming some hot radio, serving up some road snacks and selling bumper stickers out of the trunk. @trunkshowtogo for exact coordinates, trunk–show.com for annual subscription information.
ABOUT TRUNK SHOW
TRUNK SHOW is a mobile exhibition space often located near Chicago’s Eckhart Park. Following in the rich tradition of Chicago’s apartment, alternative and creative exhibition spaces, Trunk Show is committed to challenging exhibition forms through its unique program. We feature monthly solo shows for which artists are commissioned to design a limited edition bumper sticker. The sticker will live, ride along with and help propel the medium beat up 1999 forest green Ford Taurus owned by Raven Falquez Munsell and Jesse Malmed. In addition to the month-long exhibitions, the editioned bumper stickers will be sold (from the trunk) for a collector-friendly price and by annual subscription. Openings follow a nomadic, symbiotic logic and include a public affixing, radio jams and road snacks.
