Elastic Arts: 3429 W Diversey Ave, Chicago, IL 60647
For her show at Elastic, Harvey distributes her work across not only the white gallery walls, but also in more integrated ways connecting with the interior space: interspersing small ceramic works amongst orchids she situated on shelves behind the bar, placing a small sculptural work on the coffee table, and painting an entire wall as a backdrop to a work on canvas stacked on plaster sculptures. True to Harvey’s work more broadly, her installation of these objects at Elastic displays a subtle balance of form and open space.

Sorry for the missed week, I was rocking out in the lovely and exhausting Yosemite, climbing waterfalls, almost falling to my death (I shit you not, and it was completely my fault), looking at Pileated Woodpeckers (the Woody Woodpecker ones), drinking lots of Tecate and burning lots and lots of firewood. But now I’m back. It’s getting into that summer session, where things get lean. But as always quantity does not indicate quality, and following that, I give you my weekend picks. Mmmm, tasty!
