Savannah Jubic + Renée Hrovat: Should We Maybe Reschedule?

@ Line Dot Editions

1023 N Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

Opening Friday, August 23rd, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Saturday, September 14th

Line Dot is thrilled to present ‘Should We Maybe Reschedule?’ featuring original work from emerging Chicago artists Savannah Jubic and Renée Hrovat. In distinct yet complementary art practices, Jubic and Hrovat explore the anxieties and obsessions of the modern moment through labor-intensive gestures spanning multiple media. We invite you to join us for wine, beer, and kombucha on tap during an opening reception with the artists from 6:00-9:00pm.

‘Should We Maybe Reschedule?’ reflects the central tensions of the contemporary human condition, from artificiality to reality, constant interaction to loneliness, excessive consumption to emptiness. Processes such as hand-weaving, oil painting, and embroidery lend materiality to these abstract concepts, opening a space for direct physical engagement with the intangible. Each artist offers an intimate glimpse into their personal fixations and vulnerabilities as an invitation to the viewer to reflect on—and connect with—their own experiences.

Renée Hrovat (b. 1995 Aurora, Illinois) is a Chicago based painter and fiber artist working through self-portraits and text. Her work has been shown in galleries nationwide. Hrovat received the Morton Salt Centennial Scholarship as well as a Student Merit Scholarship from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Savannah Jubic (b. 1993, York, Pennsylvania) is a Chicago based fiber and installation artist whose work explores themes of anxiety and desperation through labor-intensive
gesture. She has been exhibited both in the United States and internationally. Jubic has been the recipient of a Distinguished Scholar Scholarship from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a John W Kurtich Travel Scholarship, and a Mary Hambidge Weaving Fellowship.
