Wow-house is a group show featuring visual artists reinterpreting their esthetic through object-based mediums such as furniture and the decorative arts. The pieces are coming down off the wall and entering the physical space for interaction and function. Anchored by the unique furniture design of Eric Johnson (Thistle Objects), this show promises to reinvent the notion of the household vernacular and showcase the selected artists within a context that they are exploring for the first time at Johalla Projects. This is not a genre or a movement. This is Wow-house.
Check out the Millenium Magazines exhibiton at the MoMA Library. It's up until May 14th. Family field trip, please!
KIN: someone or something of the same or similar kind.
Our kin is a web of social relationships - our clan, our tribe, our people. As we have evolved through time, the desire for family becomes centered less on the nexus of blood relations, and has shifted to shared cultural interests as a base for social identity. KIN is an exhibition of photographic work depicting groups of kindred souls, whose basis of kinship seeks to broaden the very definition of the word. Focusing largely on youth culture, KIN explores some of the ties that bind us: family, neighborhood, sport and music. Featuring artists Andreas Laszlo Konrath, Brian Sorg, Christopher Semel, Gary Briechle, Jeffrey Wolin, Leasha Overturf and Paul Elledge. Curated by Jason Robinette.
Opening Reception at the Highland Park Art Center: Friday, March 2nd from 6:30 - 9:00pm

Jordan Martins at Elastic
On view from December 1st until January 15th at the Elastic Vision Gallery, Strange Attractions is a project by visual artist Jordan Martins, based on the Chicago-specific tradition of hand-painted, block-letter grocery signs which have come to be associated with Hispanic markets in the city. This exhibition is comprised of new large scale panels, stemming from a storefront installation project carried out at various locations in the city in 2011.
