Sequences, Iterations, and Permutations (SIP) started as an online class in May of 2020. Instead of art-making that leads to one thing, artists in this class make collections of artworks that tell stories, depict emotions, or communicate ideas. Presenting artworks in a variety of mediums from photography, collage, printmaking, and drawing, to video, dance, sculpture, and poetry, this exhibition celebrates the community of over 50 artists who have participated in the class and is curated by Jasper Goodrich who designed and teaches the class.

About Jasper Goodrich
Jasper Goodrich is an artist and educator living in Chicago. At the core of his work is a belief that images and objects can make visible the parts of life that are hard to articulate: complex emotions, visual structure, memories, the expansive and iterative nature of the human imagination, the physical relationship our bodies have to the world, the processing of contemporary life, spirituality, the magic world of images, sequential ways of organizing information and images, making collaboratively with other people, influences from music and music production, fantasy, storytelling, and the connection between iteration and the social. Goodrich works in mediums including painting, printmaking, casting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and installation. He received his BS from Skidmore College in 2011 and his MFA in Print Media from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He has exhibited nationally in venues in Illinois, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. He has received grants, awards, and/or residencies from the Vermont Studio Center, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Ox-Bow School of Art, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hyde Park Art Center, and the National Iron Casting Conference. Goodrich currently teaches in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Printmedia Department and at Hyde Park Art Center where he leads a class titled “Sequences, Iterations, and Permutations.”
