SEEING IDEAS: SIGFREDO CHACÓN AND JOE ZUCKER
Seeing Ideas brings together two painters never before shown together, Sigfredo Chacón and Joe Zucker. Born in Caracas and Chicago, respectively, Chacón and Zucker share an interest in aesthetic devices such as the grid and the monochrome, often using them to criticize the modernist canon from within.
FIVE WORKS: MOISES SALAZAR
Five Works is a bimonthly project series that features five new and/or recent works by emerging Chicago artists. Works are accessible to the public by invitation only. This month’s featured artist, Moises Salazar, addresses the barriers that immigrants and queer folk face in their work.
Nonconforming is comprised of a series of video installations by Los Angeles-based artists whose projects “act out” against formal, cinematic, and social conventions.
Mana Contemporary’s community of emerging and established artists of diverse disciplines open their studios to give visitors an inside look into their practice.
NEW MEDIA PROGRAM RESIDENCY
New Media Program residents Wanbli Gamache, Anneli Goeller, Christopher Lee Hare, and Philip Mulliken activate their collective studio and engage with the public through self-generated programming.
DECENTRALIZED PRINT SHOP
A new, collaborative work space for artists to produce and distribute unique editions. Stone and plate lithography, intaglio, and relief printing presses are now available for use in a spacious studio environment.
