WEEK 2 : Renata Graw and Charlie O’Geen’s collaborative efforts will be presented Thursday, July 10, 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. 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.
Renata Graw is a founder and partner at Plural.She is a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She holds a BFA in Industrial Design from the Pontiícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro, and an MFA in Graphic Design from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Currently, she is serving as vice president for AIGA/Chicago.
Charlie O’Geen lives in Detroit and works on full-scale architectural and building experiments. His work involves architectural investigations that respond directly to the conditions of a specific site and often utilize found objects as building materials.
