Chicago Sculpture International will present its Biennial, “Design is a Verb,” at Evanston Art Center from July 27 to August 26.
The show explores the process of art making—is it intuition or is it by design? Curator Alyssa Brubaker posed the question: what does the design process of an artistic object mean when we think about and look at contemporary art, and how might these choices help us to understand the works themselves?
Brubaker is the Exhibitions Coordinator at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago, where she supports the curator in presenting global contemporary art exhibitions and programming in the Logan Center Gallery. Brubaker also runs an apartment gallery called Family Meal, a communal space centered around food and art.
CSI participating artists in this exhibition are:
Andrei Rabodzeenko, Barbara Goldsmith, Bobby Scribner, Boruch Lev, Carol Brookes, Christine Forni, Diane Tang, Dominic Sansone, Doug DeWitt, Gabrielle Egnater, Gary Kulak, Gina Lee Robbins, Jan Brugger, Janet Petry, Karen Gubitz, Ricardo Mondragon, Ron Gard, Scott Mossman, Shelley Gilchrist, Sunny Han, Victoria Fuller, and Yoonshin Park.
