Two posts within the same day? What is this…
A couple press mentions for Exquisite Corpse, which opens tonight:
Paul Klein’s Art Letter. (The write-up includes photos. Spoiler alert!)
One of the things that I genuinely like about Chicago is that it cares more about what you are doing than what you've done - just look at some of our aldermen. Not that I know anything about what Jenny Lam has done, I'm impressed by what she's doing - creating, finding, following her own path in the Chicago art scene. She's been on my radar since spring. A recent college graduate, she's just curated a charming show at Fulton Street Collective titled Exquisite Corpse. Expanding on the traditional notion where multiple artists work on a single piece without knowing what the other has done, she's solicited, culled, and matched 40 artists who don't know each other to collaborate on creating art. In most cases the pieces are fun, competent, multi-faceted and engaging.
I always enjoy being likened to corrupt Chicago politicians.
Thank you so much!
