As Our Story Opens

@ Averill and Bernard Leviton Gallery

619 S. Wabash Ave, Chicago, Il 60605

Opening Friday, June 24th, from 5PM - 7PM

On view through Saturday, July 23rd

The Averill and Bernard Leviton Gallery is pleased to present As Our Story Opens… a solo exhibition by Judith Brotman.

Judith Brotman’s work is invested in linguistics. Her pieces function as many things at once, taking the forms of installations, artist books, lists, sculptures, and audio. She uses simple materials—thread, self-hardening clay, wires and pins, found book pages, and tape—to conceptually manage irreconcilable opposites. For this exhibition, Brotman will be presenting a hand-stitched and altered version of Homer’s epic The Odyssey, a taxonomy of objects entitled Slow Time, and a sound piece called As the Story Opens… in which she reads the opening to our story over and over again.

Please join us on opening night where Devin King, Jennifer Karmin, and Anna Martine Whitehead will perform excerpts of the Odyssey.

This event is free and open to the public.
