Final Resting Place is excited and a little sad to announce the closing for Tyrants. Tyrants is our first group and international show. It has brought together 16 artists from various disciplines responding to a passage from John Berger’s book Bento’s Sketchbook. In this book, John Berger presents a series of diaristic events, encounters, and observations alongside excerpts from Baruch Spinoza’s Ethics. Berger’s own drawings support and accompany the writing throughout this intimate text. At one point in the book, he asks the reader to study the faces of the new tyrants, or profiteers as he later calls them, arguing that the likenesses share character revealing traits. Berger merges the act of studying and drawing with the inclusion of his own drawing of a tyrant in the book. For Berger, drawing is comparable to the body’s natural processes, of positioning ourselves in the world, and of engaging the impulses of our imaginations.
Please drop by our closing on December 2nd from 1-6 pm. We will be featuring a free zine documenting the works in this show. Weather permitting we will also have a bonfire in the yard. Tea/Coffee and some light refreshments will be served. FRP is located at 3350 S Bell Ave in McKinley Park Chicago. It is near the orange line, Damen, and Western Bus stops. You can also reach us at : firstname.lastname@example.org.
