salonlb. invites you to STRANGE ETIQUETTE, a special exhibition with Chicago-based artist, Bobbi Meier, opening Friday, January 17, from 6-10PM.
STRANGE ETIQUETTE is a collaboration featuring Meier’s “sensuous, slightly frightening, and grotesquely humorous” sculptures and drawings, presented in an imagined environment fashioned by salonlb. in response to the work. The menagerie of whimsical objects and nostalgic vignettes subvert expected customs of form and function, transporting visitors into a realm of distortedly vintage spectacle.
PERFORMANCE PIECES AT 7PM AND 8PM
LIVE DJ SET STARTS AT 9PM
About Bobbi Meier:
Bobbi Meier is a Chicago-based visual artist working in sculpture, drawing, photography, and installation.
Producing work that is sensuous, slightly frightening, and grotesquely humorous has become a means to engage discomfort and anger with situations that cannot be changed. Life’s frustrations and the human condition are embedded into her abstract sculptures, drawings, and installations through juxtaposition of delicate and aggressive material manipulation.
Ms. Meier has been awarded residencies at; The John Michael Kohler Arts/Industry Program, The Ragdale Foundation, The Vermont Studio Center, Ox-Bow School of Art and Artist’s Residency, Anderson Ranch, and Sanskriti-Kendra, in New Delhi. Her work has been exhibited widely in the Chicagoland area including; The Hyde Park Art Center, Roots & Culture Gallery, The International Museum of Surgical Science, to name a few. She earned her MA in Art Education (2000), and MFA in Fiber and Material Studies (2011), from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
