INSIDER / OUTISDER
November 3 - December 1
RECEPTION: Friday, November 16, 7-10pm
Insider/Outsider features photographs, videos, and other traces of live art pieces originally created in non-art contexts. This exhibition addresses the ethics of making art in public, private, and intimate space; investigates art’s role within various social and political structures; and examines the interstices between art action and contemporary life. Local artists show beside artists from China, Australia, The Czech Republic, Israel, Canada, and other parts of the United States, offering a diverse range of perspectives around the concept of place and its power to shape experience.
As the Community Supported Arts program progresses and this season's eight artists produce editions to be disseminated, we have interviewed them about their Chicago-based practices. The interviews will appear in print in the CSA Publication, but you can go ahead and download the material here: CSA 2012 Interviews.pdf, featuring the artists:
We will unveil images of the artists' anticipated editions at the end of April.
SAVE THE DATE FOR THE CSA RELEASE EVENT ON MAY 26!

Past resident artist Adia Millett has a solo show at Mixed Greens. Stop by if you're in NY!
From past residents Camlab:
Please join us this Thursday evening March 1st from 7-10pm for Two in the Bush at MOCA (Grand Ave)
In response to an economy gone to the birds, this third installment in CamLab’s Engagement Party residency will “instrumentalize” money and intention in a large-scale hands-on group gathering. Longtime “economicalists,” the members of CamLab invite you into their efficiently excessive installation for a material meditation on the distribution of resources. While occupying a cipher of fabric and song, participants will address their immediate surroundings by graphically converting cash amid the sounds of steel (oil) drumming. Join us to find your sense of re-purpose and build collectivity with conversation and contemplation, not walls with wealth. Make audible your values. CamLab will don “Feast and Famine” outfits designed by Australian artist Glenda Wyman. At the end of the evening, the duo’s Engagement Party series will conclude with a celebratory live performance by Hotel La Rut.
CamLab has apportioned a part of its series’ budget to W.A.G.E. Working Artists and the Greater Economy, in an effort to support the group’s continued work ‘to draw attention to economic equalities that exist in the arts, and to resolve them.'
A call from the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum:
Volunteers needed to help bring artwork to people's homes for a curiously fun and radically democratic Art Lending Library.
The Hull-House Museum's Art Lending Library provides artwork for Chicagoans to check out and enjoy in their own spaces for 3 months at a time.
For many, it may be the first time they have had a chance to have an original piece of art in their homes.
Here is how it works:
Interested participants come to the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum to choose a piece of art from our lending library collection.
We contact a volunteer to arrange a mutually convenient time to deliver the art.
The volunteer delivers the art, installs it, and takes a photo to document the art in place.
Happiness and satisfaction ensues to everyone involved!
After three months, a volunteer will return to de-install the art and return it to Hull-House for others to enjoy.
Our initial collection of artworks, curated by Abigail Satinsky and Shannon Stratton, comes from Community Supported Art (CSA) Chicago, a project of threewalls started by Satinsky and Shannon Stratton. Much like Community Supported Agriculture, in which shareholders invest in a local farm and receive a monthly payout of fruits and vegetables, CSA Chicago asks shareholders to invest directly in the arts community and receive limited edition contemporary artist projects in return. Satinsky will continue to work with us to grow our collection with other CSA projects throughout the country.
