Please join us in celebration of the exhibition Amy Sillman: The Nervous System at the opening reception from 6 – 8 pm on Wednesday, May 22nd. This event is free and open to all.

Featuring new and recent painting, Amy Sillman: The Nervous System calls upon abstract and figurative motifs to address the material and emotional conditions of being human in fraught political times. Sillman (b. Detroit, 1955) returns to the Midwest for her first exhibition in the city of Chicago, during a thrilling crescendo in her three decade long career.

In conjunction with the opening, the artist will discuss the work on display on Thursday, May 23rd at 6 pm at The Arts Club. This event is free and open to all, but requires registration. Please click here to reserve your space.

Thessia Machado in Newcity’s “Art Top 5”

Our current exhibition, Thessia Machado: Toward the Unsound was listed in Newcity’s Art Top 5 for February, 2019.

Click here to read the full story.

Toward the Unsound presents sculptural works by the New York based visual artist whose practice is deeply influenced by legacies of experimental sound performance and a deep care for found technology. The exhibition includes site-specific installations, designed for the particular sonic and architectural footprint of The Arts Club. Sounding and visual works are presented together in counterpoint–each contributing to, reflecting upon, and infiltrating the other. A catalogue, designed by Sonnenzimmer, was published on the occasion of the exhibition. It features an essay by the curator Jenna Lyle and a sound appendix with studio recordings of the works in the show. We hope that you’ll stop by to look and listen!

Thessia Machado’s installations and video pieces have been exhibited in New York, London, Philadelphia, Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin, Berlin and Athens. She has been awarded residencies at Homesession, Barcelona, the NARS Foundation, NY, I-Park, MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the Vermont Studio Center and is a recipient of fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, The Experimental Television Center, The Bronx Museum, and the American Academy in Berlin. In 2017 she was a recipient of an Artists Grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
