What Is and Never Was – Closing Reception

@ Parenthesis Gallery

2333 W. Ohio Street, Apt #2F, Chicago, IL 60612

Opening Sunday, August 28th, from 7PM - 9PM

On view through Thursday, September 1st

Come to a small closing reception for “What Is and Never Was” complete with adult beverages.

Parenthesis Gallery proudly exhibits “What Is and Never Was” – a group show exploring paradoxes, Schrodinger’s Cat, entrapment, and possibilities. It is interested in what it is to be in a space, to be confined, to be uncertain. In this show, the artists explore what their work might look like in a parallel zone, or in the future. They explore what their art is, and what it tries to be, whether that anchors it in reality or sends it splintering off into the unknown.

We are delighted to display artwork by Eden Mitsenmacher, Caitlin Ryan, Dan Streeting, Francine LeClercq, Nancy Wisti Grayson, Michael Rado, Sarra Jahedi, Raegan Bird, and Nathan Dragon.

The works form a dialogue with their location, all housed in and around a 6ft x 6ft x 6ft cube built for the show.

“What Is and Never Was” exhibition runs through September 1st. The closing reception is from 7pm – 9pm. All other viewings are by appointment. As always, you can reach us at
