Glass Curtain Gallery / Invisible
Glass Curtain Gallery / Invisible February 26 – April 25, 2015
Invisible explores the extreme edge of legibility in works by Chicago artists. While many of the works in Invisible are large in scale, the scope of work will only gradually emerge as visitors make their way through installations of sculpture, painting, video and drawing. The exhibition explores the visual delight and intellectual intrigue we find in the discovery of works that are both material and conceptual. Artists include: Paola Cabal, C. C. Ann Chen, Jessica Hyatt, Luftwerk and Kathleen McCarthy. Curated by Annie Morse

“… light and darkness, brightness and obscurity, or if a more general expression is preferred, light and its absence, are necessary to the production of color … Color itself is a degree of darkness.” Goethe
