CURRENT: INSIDE GAMES, OUTSIDE GAMES
(08/05/2022-09/18/2022)



Cats, birds, and the rest of the crew continue on their Schaeublian odyssey and engage in a fierce exploration of space in a spaceless universe, finding plenty of games to play along the way.

A new body of work from William Schaeuble introduces us further to how his characters deal with his logic, how a game of binocular chess is played, and clearly that birds are not reliable members of a choir.

In the hyperflat, Schaeuble reflects on space and time and our experiences of day to day life, finding levity in strange places, inside and out...  

Heavily influenced by his surroundings; he documents days spent and games played with his partner, muse, and spiritual advisor Briseis Schreibman, whose substantial presence in the work is not only denoted by a long-bodied lady, but by some of the ideas themselves.

Will and Briseis both leave Chicago this August, and in separate ways; and so the autobiographical work documents--with some imagination--this pivotal time in both of their lives.

” I went to a place where the sand meets the sky, a desolate land vast enough to foster my aspirations. An oasis to realize my visions, and to stand toe to toe with my predecessors. A manifestation of what I had learned from the greats, pouring everything I had into stepping beyond their shadow. To create a series that was masterful.

This series is attributed to my growth and to the legends I studied in this self taught journey over the last decade”

Julius Kwasi Wisdom Adorsu is a photographer, model, and mixed media artist based between Chicago and South Africa.

2022 ARCHIVE: BIMBOFICATION SENSATION
(04/08/2022-05/22/2022)



Bimbofication Sensation was a wildly popular duo exhibition featuring works by Juan Arango Palacios and Kevin Sabo.

Reflecting on notions of gender identity, femininity, and a queer experience, these works personify the artists’ expression of the inner-self. Heavily influenced by Drag culture, these paintings flaunt notions of extravagance and boldness. Establishing a visual vernacular for contemporary queerness, these works blend reality and fantasy into a vocabulary that empowers and validates queer folks.

Arango Palacio’s images of queer selfies, which reference internet culture, are a taste of reality among Sabo’s repetetive characters which invite the viewer into a drag simulation with an infinite number of outfits and possibilities. Looking back at their childhood in the 2000’s, both artists reference fashion trends and pop cultures that influenced their queer identity in their formative years, and which still influence how they present themselves today.

Arango Palacio’s reggaeton-inspired club looks paired with Sabo’s pop diva rosters would bring about a gallery environment where the queer expereince is not only unapologetically represented, but also uplifted, celebrated, and rejoiced. Ultimately rooted in their upbringing in cultures where queerness was unacceptable, these works are a result of years of pain, confusion, and denial.

Championing a cathartic painting practice, these artists create images of internet realities and nostalgic fantasies that manifest only love and self-acceptance– leaving behind years of repression, and taking on a painted self that is confidently unstoppable, and dazzling in every way.
