Holy shit, I left you hanging on the busiest gallery weekend ogfthe year! Well, I made about a thousand maps, all of which were posted over at Chicago Art Magazine, and between those, working on the annual Renaissance Society benefit auction, teaching, art making, blah blah blah, I totally missed my weekend picks.

June 19, 2009 · Print This Article

I had the opportunity for a brief (and I mean super quick) walk through with co-curator Rachel Kalom of this show this past week. It opens tonight, and it is definitely worth checking out. I harassed Rachel with some questions about co-curating a show, and will share those answers and some pics from the opening later this weekend. From the press release:

Zolla Lieberman Gallery proudly presents a group exhibition addressing art making in an era of tightened belts and pinched pennies. Curated by Brian Gillham and Rachel Kalom and with works by Sarah & Joseph Belknap, Tom Berenz, Michael Cheatwood, Garrett Durant, Lucia Fabio & Robert Andrew Mueller, Shannon Goff, Nadia Hotait, Natalia Ivancevich, Sam Jaffe, Mark Khaisman, Austin Knierim, Jessica Labatte, Jesus Mejia, Phillip Orr, Vijay V. Paniker, Miriam Slager, Deb Sokolow, Katherine Webb and Jake Wells.

Opening reception: Friday, June 19th, 5-9pm
