Phaedra Call
Opening Reception: February, 4-6pm

It Was The Future considers the female athlete as cultural icon through video, performance and photography. Through documented performance and photographic collage, Call suggests a hypothetical autobiography of herself as a member of the US Women's National Soccer Team grieving the loss of a World Cup match while in reality she is an artist grieving the loss of her own athletic aspirations.

Opening Reception: March 12, 4-6pm

MucousTech is a figurative technology company. With a focus on textures and viscosity, MucousTech responsibly explores human fluidity through a physical  and technological hybridization. In this way MucousTech is intended to serve as the realization of a self-portrait. 

April 2 - April 17. 2015

BJ Allen
Opening Reception: April 2, 4-6pm

BJ Allen’s work uses ambient sound, abstract video, and sculptural objects to portray a unique emotional and philosophical journey grounded in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago. Edgewater Oriented Ontology consists of two site-specific installations and several works that use new technologies to bring to light rich layers of meaning found in one’s immediate surroundings. Inspired by the fluid definitions observed in Object Oriented Ontology, Allen relates disparate concepts such as grief, refuge, physics, color, transparency, and technology to form a colorful, meditative whole. BJ Allen's work is supported by the Albert P. Weisman Award at Columbia College Chicago.
