Macie Stewart is a multi-instrumentalist improviser and composer from Chicago, IL. A classically trained pianist and violinist, she embraced free improvisation as a way to make music outside of traditional norms, while combining her varied influences and interests. Her style of improvising draws from her classical training as well as her experience playing folk and experimental rock music both nationally and internationally. She is currently touring with her band, Ohmme, Ken Vandermark’s Marker, and her own trio, The Few.
Julian Kirshner is a Chicago-based drummer primarily working in the context of jazz and improvised music. Percussion studies began at age 10 when Kirshner was selected to be a member of the CSO’s Percussion Scholarship Group. Over the past 15 years, he has studied with Sarah Allen, David Bloom, Dylan Ryan, and Frank Rosaly. Kirshner also organizes the Improvised Music Series at Myopic Books, a weekly showcase of musicians playing uncharted music in a first-time context.

Galerie Gisela Capitain
In 2016 Galerie Gisela Capitain celebrated its 30th anniversary with an exhibition of works by Martin Kippenberger.Together with Günther Förg,Charline von Heyl,Zoe Leonard,Albert Oehlen,Stephen Prina, Franz West and Christopher Wool, Martin Kippenberger belongs to the first generation of artists who have shaped the gallery’s program since its founding in 1986. For over 30 years, the gallery’s artistic agenda has remained focused on, though not limited to, European and American Contemporary Art from the 1980s until now. In the 2000s Wade Guyton, Seth Price and Kelley Walker, a generation of emerging artists at the time, joined the program, among others. Adding emerging as well as established artists, including Barbara Bloom, Richard Smith or Monika Sosnowska, the gallery continually evolved its program. In recent years, Galerie Gisela Capitain extended its program with Asian artists: Japanese artist Hiroki Tsukuda and Hong Kong based composer, multi media and sound artist Samson Young, joined the gallery, followed by Peruvian artist Ximena Garrido-Lecca and London based painter Jadé Fadojutimi.
Galerie Gisela Capitain is the exclusive worldwide representative of the Estate of Martin Kippenberger since 1997.
