Getting Acquainted

@ Johalla Projects

1561 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

Opening Friday, January 8th, from 7PM - 10PM

On view through Sunday, January 24th

We spend our lives surrounded by strangers. They’re sitting at bars, shopping in malls, and working in offices all around us. And while strangers are everywhere, we’re rarely given the chance to explore their circumstances. Conversely, the artists in Getting Acquainted have chosen to spend time with strangers. Anonymously working after the fact, they turn brief encounters into deep, careful records. Through collaborative video work, drawing, photography, and simply listening, these works celebrate the process and products of getting to know a stranger.

Work by In b Flat, Kristin Freeman, Shane Lavalette, Jason Polan, The Free Listening Project and Daniel Shea. Curated by Joseph Rynkiewicz.
