Gabriela Salazar @ Efrain Lopez Gallery, Jul 29 – Sep 4

26 July 2016

Gabriela Salazar is presenting solo exhibition Eye of Palm at Chicago’s Efrain Lopez Gallery, opening July 29 and running to September 4.

The show is a continuation of the New York-based artist’s “exploration of the transmission of narrative, possibility, and history via the built environment” and consists of ‘graspable’ sculptures described as “handrails and stone-like objects”.

The press release explains, “through the exhibition’s mise en scène, the artist implicates essential structures of human relationships to material, and nests bodily locations through implied proprioception”. The exhibition includes poetry, which appears to play a large part in Salazar’s work.

See the Efrain Lopez Gallery website for more details.**

Chloe Seibert @ Efrain Lopez Gallery, Apr 22 – May 15

21 April 2016

Chloe Seibert is presenting solo exhibition Nightmare Heart at Chicago’s Efrain Lopez Gallery, opening April 22 and running to May 15.

The Chicago-based artists will be presenting new sculpture and painting exploring “aggressive mark making and exaggerated common forms”, which the exhibition announcement describes as “vague expressions in pedestrian materials and a bland palette.” Hence, presumably, the accompanying exhibition image that quite literally translates said theme into a photo of a bit of pavement  with the event details scrawled onto it in black marker.

Seibert has notably shown in the past with American Medium, COOPER COLE, and Queer Thoughts, as well as the Just Frustration group show in Copenhagen last year.

See the FB event page for details.**
