FLXST Contemporary marks its opening in the Chicago arts landscape in its new space in the historic Motor Row district of the South Loop with its first group show titled “New Editions: Into the FLXST.”
FLXST Contemporary worked closely with ten artists, some based in Chicago while others based across the US, to create limited edition prints of their work. All prints will be on display at the opening reception, and FLXST will offer them for sale through the gallery and on its website.
The artists showcasing their work (in alphabetical order):
Kelvin Burzon (Bloomington, IN)
Jason Dunda (Chicago, IL)
Roberto Jamora (Richmond, VA)
Colleen Keihm (Chicago, IL)
Laura Kina (Chicago, IL)*
Kat Larson (Seattle, WA)
Maya Mackrindilal (Los Angeles, CA)
Karl Orozco (Queen, NY)
Oli Rodriguez (Los Angeles, CA)

* 30% of the proceeds from the limited edition prints by Laura Kina will go to the nonprofit Equality Illinois (www.equalityillinois.us) to support its policy work for more LGBTQ+ inclusive and affirming legislation in the state of Illinois.
