Ceaseless Blooms in Jobless Colors

One Night Only: May 20th, 2011
7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.

1561 N. Milwaukee Ave
Chicago, IL 60622

Ceaseless blooms in Jobless Colors is a collectively curated show by an upper level course at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Presenting a breadth of new work in photography, video, sculpture, and new media, the artist’s disparate practices are brought together under a shared sense of ambivalence about leaving the cloister produced by an art education.

The floor lasts for four years only; intangible though the feeling is, the upset caused by being forced out into the world with only a shirt on one’s back, a degree on file, and a repository of contacts in one’s phone is a sentiment known by all students. What remains to be seen is whether or not everyone concerned will succeed, and how, further, they define success.

Participating Artists:

Thomson Dryjanski, , Brandy Fisher, , Emerson Granillo, David M. Hall, Misato Inaba, Absis Minas, Jen Smoose, Jaroslaw Studencki, Kristen Lee Stokes, Eileen Mueller, Casey McGonagle, Hyounsang Yoo.
