Pen Incest Publication Launch

@ 062 Gallery

1029 W 35th St, Chicago, IL 60609

Opening Thursday, December 13th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Sunday, January 6th

Instantaneity and impulsive communication have become part of our quotidian. We would like to challenge the speed of a conversation by returning to the pace of a postcard, a physical delivery.
Pen Incest publication takes the shape of an itinerant sketchbook that offers a playful creative platform.
One could see this project as a curated exquisite corpse, where every artist contributes to a constantly evolving visual conversation. The nomadic object enables delayed chats and thickens over the course of added responses, shouted or murmured.

With two central themes “Failed Masquerade” and “Shared Loneliness”, we invited 24 Chicago based artists to take part in this edition.
