Exquisite Gallery, Curated by Plural
June 26-July 26, 2014
WEEK 4: For the final week of Exquisite Gallery, Bitchin Bajas and Pair will collaborate in the gallery space, with a presentation of their efforts on Thursday, July 24, 5-8pm.
A+D Gallery is pleased to present our fourth annual Summer Residency with Logan Square-based Plural, a collaborative art and design practice. Focused on a process of research and experimentation, Plural collaborates on meaningful projects in art, design, interaction, installation, music, new media, and technology.
With Exquisite Gallery, the gallery itself provides the canvas for Plural's Summer experimentation. Akin to the Surrealist parlor game Exquisite Corpse, there is no telling what will result in the end.
During the month of July, Exquisite Gallery will transform from week to week. Each week will be led by one of four collaborators with only one rule: that the following week has a tie to the previous week. Exquisite Gallery transforms the gallery space into a creative lab for the generation of ideas and experimentation, rather than a presentation of polished works.
Bitchin Bajas is an experimental/ ambient trio based in Chicago and includes Rob Frye (CAVE/Flux Bikes/Herbivore) and Dan Quinlivan (Mahjongg).
Pair is the audio/visual duo of Marta Sofia Honer (Quartet Datura) and Jeremiah Chiu (Deep Sleep/Axis:Sova/ Chandeliers/Icy Demons) whose performances engulf the audience in a sensory journey. Mr. Chiu is the co-founder of Plural and an active experimental artist/ musician in Chicago.
