What Is?

@ Public Access

3306 W North Ave, Chicago, IL 60647

Opening Friday, March 3rd, from 7PM - 10PM

On view through Saturday, April 1st

Public Access presents What Is?, an exhibition featuring works with materials that lie. Artists include Felipe Steinberg, Karen Reimer, Tammi Campbell and Ai Weiwei*. From the coin dies of a speculative ISIS currency, to a romance novel in which words have been rearranged alphabetically, these artists’ works assert themselves materially in ways that are misleading, affirming, dangerous, or strange. Each exhibits an ‘untruth to materials’, which is perhaps revealing. Curated by Keeley Haftner.

Opens: Friday, March 3, 7-10pm

March 3 – April 1
Gallery hours: Saturdays: 12pm-6pm, and by appointment
