1. A Hole in My Bucket


January 14, 2017, 7-10PM
Work by: Cameron Harvey (Curated by Jordan Martins)
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.

Shifter_21_Other_Spaces

Shifter’s 21st issue, Other Spaces, considers the body as a site where architecture’s traditional polarities of private and public collapse. This polarity, mirrored in the distinctions we draw between individual and social freedoms and domestic and political action are challenged every day by spontaneous, collaborative re-imaginings of space.

In this issue artists, writers and critical thinkers reflect upon and imagine those other spaces that are coming to be and that are yet to be imagined in the social transformations of our present. While Other Spaces may appear to be an Atlas, it may just as well be read as a diary.

Number 21 features contributions from Jeremy Bolen, Luis Camnitzer, Tyler Coburn, Julia Fish, Beate Geissler & Oliver Sann, Sheela Gowda, Joanne Greenbaum, Tehching Hsieh, Kitty Kraus, Dan Levenson, Blank Noise, Alison O’Daniel, Sean Raspet, Blithe Riley, Jacolby Satterwhite, Greg Sholette & Agata Craftlove, Lise Soskolne, Mariam Suhail, and Josh Tonsfeldt.
