Every thought in our head is just like every other thought in someone else’s, fleeting and imagined. We can and will be incomplete together, through the reproducible action of sharing the stories of ourselves with one another. Flowing streams of narrative, of fragments of things that are past, and the things that we imagine the future to be made of while standing beside something that’s demanding, or soft, or a little bit unkempt. The vulnerability of our imaginings is tidal. A consequence of our humanity as it is indulged, begrudged, sacrificed, and savored.

…To Start Off The New Year!
Hey everyone! Hope ya’ll had a good hooliday! And now we stride fourth, from the ‘Ots to the Onezies, with many a show to look forward too. This weekend (especially Friday) is particularly ripe for new year pickings, so in celebration of all that, I give you…
THE FIRST 10 OF THE NEW YEAR!
(In not much of a particular order)
Happy ‘Effen 2010!
1. In Stereo at Rotofugi
I feel like I should hate this work for being hip and trite, but it just makes me think of Rosler’s 60-era “Bringing the War Home” too much for me to hate it. Make your own decision.
Reception Friday from 7-10pm. Rotofugi is located at 1953 W. Chicago Ave.
2. 3-for-1: Queen of Heaven, R&R (…&R), and Up Is Down at the Chicago Cultural Center
I am generally in favor of 3-for-1 shows, especially when there are actually three big shows in one place, something few other places do as well as the Cultural Center. On top of that the work looks worth seeing, to boot. Sheesley presents nearly photo-real paintings of puddles, Faier forces confrontation with death (or our refusal to confront it) with his images of mausoleums and their waiting rooms, and Slavick explores carnage in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Lebanon through over painted photographs.
Reception Friday from 6-8pm. The Chicago Cultural Center is located at 78 E. Washington St.
