Sep 8th 2011


@ Glass Curtain Gallery

1104 South Wabash Chicago, IL

Opening Thursday, September 8th, from 5PM - 8PM

On view through Wednesday, November 2nd

CoLaboratory examines the nature of collaborative art by creating a visual record of this process and exploring the cultural constructs that support it. Using dramatic video projections and mobile structural interventions, Chicago artists’ collaboratives ED JR. and (ƒ)utility projects will exhibit works created independently within each group, but integrated in the Glass Curtain Gallery with reference to both the space and the interactions experienced in the development of the exhibition. Visitors are invited to adjust the structures on which video projections are shown, amending and re-forming the evolving images as they move. Four gallery events will allow visitors to participate in ED JR.’s large-format painting practice; the videos from these interactions will then be screened in the exhibition itself. CoLaboratory will address the inherent frictions and challenges of collaboration, as well as its fruitful outcomes.

CoLaboratory is curated by Annie Morse with ED JR. and (f)utility projects.

Artist Lecture: The Uncommon Nature of Artists as Collaborators, with ED JR. and (ƒ)utility projects collective members Paola Cabal and Edra Soto, Monday, September 26, 6pm, Conaway Center
