Making Space

@ The Plan

600 N Albany Ave, Chicago, IL 60612

Opening Friday, June 10th, from 7PM - 10PM

On view through Friday, July 22nd

The works in Making Space embrace the holistic view of painting as both an image and also an object that is the sum of many parts. This exhibition showcases a series of techniques, from renaissance-informed egg tempera, to the cutting and reassembling of a painting’s core elements. Artworks in this exhibition invite the viewer to celebrate the fundamental design elements of painting, including color theory, balance, and technique while addressing their own physicality and object-ness.

These paintings ‘make space’ by positioning and repositioning the viewer’s POV, dictating how they should stand and the means of observation. To engage with the works is to observe them from multiple angles and proximities, to view them in their parts, and to see them as a whole.

Artists participating in Making Space are:
Noelle Africh | Ryan Burns | Steven Carrelli | Gina Hunt | Matt Irie | Frank Vega | Jonathan Worcester

Curated by:
Ari Norris and Philip Spangler
