Paul Catanese: Visible From Space
On view through September 27

Paul Catanese’s premier solo exhibition in Chicago ponders the creation of Earthly drawings as seen from the Moon. Following experiments involving camera-equipped aerial vehicles – from kites to rockets to drones – flown over high desert settings, this residency project and exhibition creates both “operating theater” and “theater of operations” in an embrace of the scientific, military and pedagogic connotations of these terms.

Catanese composes large-scale diagrammatic drawings on the ground level using various props and then, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, pilots a 12-foot helium-filled blimp to fly over, observe, project and record aerial footage of the evolving “viewed from the Moon” works.

Catanese is Associate Professor of Art & Art History and Director of the Interdisciplinary Arts & Media MFA Program at Columbia College Chicago.
