“Without contraries is no progression. Attraction and repulsion, reason and energy, love and hate, are necessary to human existence.”
Locallective invited artists of all styles and media to submit work for Still Collisions, our September show and first-ever call for entries exhibition. Still Collisions explores the various colliding forces we experience throughout our lives and the magnitude found in the moment of impact between these forces. Collision, or the moment of impact, refers to many things. A collision between two people or groups of people on an emotional or ideological ground. A physical and observable collision that impacts those surrounding it. Meetings, feuds, celebrations, changes, passings, moments, goodbyes. Still refers to the quiet or understated ways that these collisions can take place, and to time itself. It indicates the calm before or after the storm, and the way time has the ability to alter our perception of these impacts. “Without contraries is no progression.” Still Collisions examines the opposing energies that drive us, shape us, and force us to reconcile the complicated and ever-changing world we live in.
Join us on Friday, September 11th at 7:30pm for our Opening Reception of this dynamic exhibition of Chicago Artists. The show will be on display throughout September and will close on Thursday, October 1st.
