Jodie Mack

@ Trunk Show

280 S. Columbus

Opening Friday, November 1st, from 4 PM - 6 PM

On view through Sunday, December 1st

TRUNK SHOW is delighted to announce its third solo exhibition, the incomparable Jodie Mack.

For those not afraid of no ghosts, Halloween is a chance to get weird and wild. Everyone loves dressing up, including a so-called “medium beat up 1999 forest green Ford Taurus.” So, the day after her exciting, big deal Conversations at the Edge screening, Jodie Mack will costume Trunk Show with exciting new duds. Mack’s monster mash-up of a couple of poster shoppe favorites is sure to make you chortle. Funny, colorful, witty, feelingful and hand-hewn, Mack’s work is the real deal. We’re ecstatic to have it along for the ride.

Following a class visit in Jason Lazarus and Nick Wylie’s class on experimental curation (from 3-4), TRUNK SHOW will do (and do anew) the ritual affixing of Mack’s sticker outside (follow @trunkshowtogo for exact coordinates) the Columbus Building at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Dress in your art student finest during the talk, or just come for the opening and all its attendant snacks and chats.

Mack’s 16mm films and videos have screened widely at festivals like Ann Arbor, Rotterdam, Images, Views from the Avant Garde as well as at venues like Anthology Film Archive, Los Angeles Film Forum and Northwest Film Forum. By turns stroboscopic and musical, narrative and abstract, personal and formal, her works think, feel, sing and joke through an idiosyncratic conception of contemporary experimental cinema, the valuation of craft and material and scales of production. Mack earned her MFA from the SAIC, her BA from the University of Florida and currently teaches animation at Dartmouth College.

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 lives, rides along with, and helps 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 are sold (from t
he 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.

A limited number of subscriptions are still available.

Upcoming artists include: Deborah Stratman, Lauren Anderson, Oli Watt and Brandon Alvendia
