The closing of Robin Hustle’s Fenestrated Shape (modified)

@ Roman Susan

1224 W Loyola Ave, Chicago, IL 60626

Opening Saturday, March 21st, from 4PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, March 21st

The previously planned event The closing of Robin Hustle’s Fenestrated Shape has been modified. Roman Susan will have open hours on the final day of the exhibition from 12-6 PM, but the originally planned activations of the work will take place at a later date in Summer 2020. At 5 PM, Gwyneth Zeleny Anderson will join Robin Hustle for a preview of the Summer activation. Following that, Hustle will present an RN-guided conversation about responding to COVID-19 from a perspective of community health and mutual aid.

The exhibition is dedicated to porous insistence, floral directness, unwieldy interdependence, and rocky resistance.

Soft rock monuments. Each monument is an eroding form that is more like a body than an altar, a body being a collection of minerals and organisms in a general shape that is said to be mine. The hard part press against the soft parts.

Care vessels for common water. An orgy of ceramic spouts and vessels that render care visible.

Giving and receiving gradient (transition dishes) with Gwyneth Zeleny Anderson. Pitcher becomes cup, cup becomes plate, plate becomes spoon, spoon becomes pitcher. The dishes are relational, not entirely themselves.

In these and other ceramic forms, I’m feeling permeable. My shapes are both material and impermanent, like bodies, like earth, like the spaces within and between forms.

—Robin Hustle

Hours: Saturdays 12-6, Sundays 4-7
Closing: Saturday, March 21 // 4-8
