Loving Repeating: New Work by Miller & Shellabarger

Loving Repeating: New Work by Miller & Shellabarger

Longtime collaborators Dutes Miller & Stan Shellabarger premiere their largest multimedia installation in Loving Repeating. The Chicago-based artists have been creating works on paper, performances, and installations that draw attention to the human condition as experienced through the queer perspective since 1993. The exhibition will incorporate their signature style featuring silhouettes of each other’s bodies – recognizable from their long beards – to build an immersive installation. Combining cut paper, vinyl, video, light and shadow, the artists aim to address the presence and absence of human touch experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Malika Jackson: Whispers of a World Without Words

Chicago-based artist and educator, Malika Jackson presents emotional narrative works in painting, drawing and sculpture inspired by her lived experience as well as texts by writers like Langston Hughes and Sonia Sanchez.

Sequences, Iterations, and Permutations (SIP)

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. Artists work in a range 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.
