Slow Read

Saturday, November 2, 2013 at 9:00am to 5:00pm

Glass Curtain Gallery 1104 S Wabash Ave, 1st Floor, Chicago, IL 60605

September 3 – November 2, 2013

Opening Reception: September 18, 5-8pm

Part of the Wabash Arts Corridor Crawl

Slow Read presents the work of five Chicago painters alongside collections of books curated by each artist.  The selected books, which
range from Roberto Bolaño’s biographies of imaginary Pan-American authors to Anaïs Nin’s diaries, offer unique points of access to the
complex and subtle abstract work in the exhibition. Installed amongst the work these curated libraries also offer moments of respite, slowing down the viewer’s experience and allowing them the time to absorb the
complexities of the paintings and drawings on display.

As part of Slow Read, the artists will work with the Center for Book and Paper Arts on the production of a limited edition artist book that
will be available during the exhibition.

Artists include: Emiliano Cerna-Rios, Magalie Guerin, Brian Kapernekas, Nazafarin Lofti and Tim Nickodemus

Slow Read is curated by Justin Witte
