“Tryptic”- Time, Material & Space @ the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival!
by Corryn Jackson
So I have been super ultimately excited and stressed about this show Sarah and I have been planning for the past 3 months. Our proposal was accepted back in April and this is what we are showing for Chicago’s Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival July 29th-31st! The show opens Friday from 4-10pm and is open Saturday 12-10pm and Sunday 12-10pm. Please come to 2515 N. Milwaukee to peep out what all these folks have been creatin!
“Tryptic- Time, Materials, & Space” Curated by Corryn Jackson & Sarah Gardiner
Tryptic will showcase the culmination of three months of work from 13 artists. Beginning in April and ending in June, artists received one instruction per month for a project in the mail. These instructions functioned as inspiration and focus, but did not put restriction on the medium. When Tryptic is complete, 3 webs of completely original and diverse groups of art will emerge, tied together by 3 themes.
Live performances: Paul Bancel (http://paulbancell.com/) will be performing at 9pm on Friday 2/29, and 6pm on Saturday 7/30 with a video and sound performance. We’ll have DJs the entire weekend, including Louis Perchikoff from 3-4pm, and then Mike Bulington from 4-5pm — both on Saturday (more DJs TBA). We are sharing the space with three other galleries, so there will be other performances and DJs not affiliated with our space, but I’m sure equally as sweet.
Artists include Erin Anderson-Ruddon, Alana Bailey, Paul Bancel, Uriel Correa, Mollie Edgar, Steven Emshwiller, Andrew Freels, Sarah Gardiner, Corryn Jackson, Lindsey Leyland, Cristina Mezuk, Diana Terry, Pete Ziegel
Our gallery is BYOB, so bring a six pack and hang out!
