Julius Caesar is pleased to present 2 group shows opening on August 26th from 7-10. Flare Gun features Matt Mancini, Dom Smith, and Mike Rubins; Signal Call features Lilli Carre, Erin Hayden, Monica Nydam. Both shows investigate the relationship of images in space and digital space in images.
Mancini, Smith, and Rubins overlapped at SAIC in the sculpture MFA program, often exploring digital space and imagery as inspiration for their sculptures. Since graduating, Rubins has left for LA and Smith has moved to NYC. Flare Gun brings the three young sculptors together again.
Signal Call’s Lilli Carre, Erin Hayden, and Monica Nydam are recent MFA graduates from around Chicago. Carre and Hayden finished at Northwestern, while Nydam attended UIC. All three have prominently featured the use of digital space and internet imagery in their work.
