2337 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL, 60647
Opening Friday, September 9th, from 7PM - 9PM
On view through Sunday, November 20th
A Rule By Nobody is an exploration of the boredoms, frustrations and pleasures of bureaucratic routines. Drawing its title from Hannah Arendt’s definition of bureaucracy, the exhibition takes the bored energy of office labor and channels it into a multipart dive into the sublimely overflowing inbox, the inky warm Xerox room, the balled up wads of red tape, and the moments of escape that punctuate the droning beige sameness of nine to five. Composed of a rotating group exhibition in Sector 2337’s rear project space, a video screening, and a printed publication, the show examines the civic space of the form document, the relationships between boredom and freedom, and the vulnerable privacy of the digital archive.
A Rule by Nobody is organized by Third Object, a roving curatorial collective based in Chicago. Recent exhibitions include Slow Stretch, Mana Contemporary Chicago; Satellites, The Franklin; Were the Eye Not Sunlike, ACRETV and Fernwey; and Mossy Cloak, Roots and Culture. Third Object is Ann Meisinger, Raven Munsell, and Gan Uyeda.
