for the last week i've been running on 13 hour days. my day job and then my volunteer work on the Visual Art Curatorial Committee at UICA at night and weekends. I've been a part of a subcommittee who developed a prospectus for a jury show titled 'Material Afterlife'. The exhibit explores the growing relevance of artwork that examines environmental degradation, consumerism, personal value, and frugality, as well as celebrates the significance of recycling, sustainable methods, and thrift-store culture as medium and subject matter for artists. After a lot of hard work, the show came together quite well and the opening was well attended this past Good Friday. here's a stream of photos from the opening.
