@ Design Cloud

118 N. Peoria 2N, Chicago IL 60607

Opening Friday, June 14th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Thursday, July 11th

Design Cloud Gallery presents Embody, a performance art exhibition featuring artists Claire Ashley, Baccara (Madeleine Bailey and Helen Maurene Cooper), Alexandria Eregbu, Karen Faith, Vicki Fowler, Anni Holm, HUB (Victoria Bradford), Meredith and Anna (best known for their curatorial project, Happy Collaborationists), Joseph Ravens, and Sarah Beth Woods.

Use of the body is central to each of these performance-based artists as they convey moments of reality through both movement and collaborative ritual. Whether the actual work of art is done in secret or in view of a full audience, one can argue that the work is not complete until viewed by someone other than the artist.

Those who view performance art on a regular basis, usually do so intentionally. Frequently regarded as one of the bolder art disciplines, performance artists have a way of simultaneously capturing the attention of the audience and the essence of their intention. The vulnerability that they often exude transfers to audience members like cigarette smoke in a small room, forcing them from one level as spectator to that of a participant.

Curated by Angela Bryant
