“Join us in the gallery for an opening reception for Jaime Davidovich: Outreach 1974-1984, the first solo exhibition in Chicago of video and television works by the pioneering Argentine artist Jaime Davidovich, curated by Daniel Quiles. The exhibition examines the dynamic ten-year period in which Davidovich transitioned from formalist experiments with installation and video to the production of public-access cable television programs.
In the Project Room, as part of Threewalls’ SOLO exhibition program, Chicago-based artist Latham Zearfoss has created an immersive sound installation titled Yes x 1000. A layered, echoing series of recordings of the word “yes,” his piece explores rituals of affirmation, addresses ways in which interconnected online platforms create realms of easy approval and validation, while also sometimes–paradoxically–reinforcing isolation.”
