Jeff Ward, Shannon Stratton interviewed, Michael Miller, and the “Made in China” show at the Museum of Contemporary Photography reviewed. – ALSO LIVE WITHOUT A NET, Bad at Sports that the Steppenwolf garage theater this Wednesday the 8th as a part of the NPR, Third Coast Festival, Listen Room series. Come throw rocks at us you jerks!

THIS WEEK:

Jeff Ward and Shannon Stratton have curated the wonderful series of shows, the Happiness I Seek. Showing consecutively in 5 spaces throughout the Chicago community, The Happiness I Seek will feature artists Andrea Cohen (at ThreeWalls), Loul Samater (at Fraction Workspace), Ryan Swanson (at The Chicago Cultural Center), Mike Andrews (at 40000) and Clinton King (at The Suburban). Through a format of dispersing the sculptural installations throughout the city, the exhibition takes on the rhizomatic and cooperative nature of current art and exhibition practice: the materials of the artworks and the artworks of the exhibit and the spaces in a community imply the ideas of attraction, chemistry and the dancing cheek-to-cheek as evoked by the title’s Irving Berlin’s lyric.

NEXT WEEK:

Artist, Alison Ruttan invites us to her home for an interview about her work, and research on Bonobo chimps. We continue our conversation with Jeff Ward about the Core Program in Texas, and talk with Shannon Stratton about the Three Walls Residency. We finish the show off with a cacophony of reviews!
