WEEK 3 : On Thursday, July 17, Cameron Brand will host a reception from 5-8 pm.
A+D Gallery is pleased to present its fourth annual Summer Residency with Chicago-based design studio Plural.
Plural will transform A+D Gallery into a 1,350 square foot canvas for experimentation over the course of four weeks. Akin to the Surrealist parlor game Exquisite Corpse, the gallery will transform from week to week, employing art, graphic design, architecture, installation, interactivity, music, and performance. One of four collaborators from Plural will guide a week with only one rule: that the following week will have a tie to the previous week. The gallery space will be an ever-changing creative lab for the generation of ideas and exploration.
Cameron Brand will use the gallery space as a meditation on slowness, with mindfulness of complexity and disregard for the computer as a tool, which is otherwise his primary platform for creation. He is a developer / intermedia artist / musician from Chicago who has been collaborating with Plural since 2009. Cameron graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2011, where he is also the New Media Arts lab specialist.
