As a part of “All of the Above,” artist Oscar Arriola will be hosting an interactive event titled “Drawn In” on June 15th. Up to a dozen artists have been invited to create drawings on site as a part of The Stick-Up Chicago Sticker Crew. Artists will be equipped with cameras mounted on their head or chest in order to document their process and micro cams will also be attached to the drawing utensils in order to digitally capture their strokes. A short film will be created from the footage by Brian Steckel of An-ism in order to archive the event.
Confirmed artists so far include CHema SKandal!, Terrance “Dredske” Byas, Joe “Cujo Dah” Nelson, Ken R. Klopack/Purekreation, Brian Steckel, Anthony Lewellen “antckone”, and Jourdon Gullett. Stay tuned for more artist announcements!
Elephant Room Gallery is excited to be collaborating with Flatlands Studios June 12th through June 25th for this series of exciting happenings in the gallery entitled “All of the Above”. Eric Von Haynes of Flatlands Studios has curated printed ephemera, art objects, film, talks, workshops and performance art by various artists and art collectives from all over the world in order to transform the gallery into a community gathering space that will bring people together for a positive learning experience. The goal is to celebrate and embrace the idea of community through documentation, archiving, and activation of spaces in and through art practices.
