Limit 5 people per class
Advanced registration recommended

HEALING CLINIC:
Organic movement and being with and compassionately conversing with what’s presently emerging in the body’s sensations, images, emotions, and movements for powerful and deep healing.

The body stores a rich amount of information and experience. It is the manifest expression of a much deeper level of our spiritual being: who we believe we are combined with incomplete past movements/desires.

In this clinic, we will integrate, transform, and bring DEEP healing to your body and your being. Bringing an intimate level of awareness to the body’s sensations, we will practice having a deep conversation with the body and the body’s images, responses, needs, movements, desires, and insights. We will restore the simplicity of the body’s and spirit’s needs of love, connection, freedom, strength, peace and vitality through awareness and basic natural movements.

When we listen and communicate with the body in a compassionate, gentle, and loving way, we are able to ally with the body and move forward with ease, grace, and embodiment. This work is a blend of ancient yogic techniques including the development of consciousness and awareness and the focus of attention and presence, and somatic therapies that bring creativity and connection.

You will receive personal healing and attention, compassionate witnessing in a small group, and tools to navigate the experience of yourself in your body. We will work with what is present in the body on the day of the clinic, or whatever it is you seek healing and transformation on along your personal healing journey.

***This is not a class of yoga poses/asana, rather we will tune into the natural movement of the body.

***No prior experience with yoga necessary

Storytelling: Stephen Eichhorn and Austin Radcliffe In Conversation

September 04, 2016 at Chicago Athletic Association Hotel in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=SRnPcsDiud2ytsJhpGIvkA

Join Chicago artist Stephen Eichhorn and Cincinnati curator Austin Radcliffe of Things Organized Neatly for a discussion about Eichhorn’s artist practice and his current installation “The Flower Knows”, which is on view in Chicago Athletic Association’s Drawing Room from September 1 to October 16.

While Eichhorn is known for his intricately detailed two-dimensional works, “The Flower Knows” is comprised of four new sculptures created exclusively for the Drawing Room. He explores shape and form with nods to ritual and nature while simultaneously drawing inspiration from the architectural details throughout the original woodwork of the Chicago Athletic Association. The freestanding objects are made from vintage found jewelry components considerately arranged much in the same way that Eichhorn approaches his undulating, lush plant collages. Here, the black blooms and shapes are more tangible, elegantly cascading and intertwining.

Stephen Eichhorn lives and works in Chicago. He has had solo exhibitions at the Elmhurst Art Museum, Chicago; CES Gallery, Los Angeles; Johalla Projects, Chicago, and Ebersmoore, Chicago. His work has also been included in group exhibitions at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York; Josée Bienvenu Gallery, New York; and Heaven Gallery, Chicago. Eichhorn received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2006. He will present a solo exhibition at Johalla Projects, Chicago in September 2016 and is the subject of a forthcoming monograph by Zioxla Publishing House.

Austin Radcliffe is a Cincinnati-based curator, writer, and photographer best known for his blog & book titled Things Organized Neatly. Radcliffe has worked in galleries since 2010, with his curatorial debut at Mt Comfort in Indianapolis in 2012. He has gone on to work internationally including projects at Tate Modern and Art Basel, Switzerland. Radcliffe holds a BFA from Herron in Indianapolis and currently splits time between the Midwest and New York.

Opening Reception – Spun

September 24, 2016 at Stuart & Co. Gallery in Chicago.

tracking.php?code=H1pdaB0p73PLfYHFcSUWAD

Stuart & Co. Gallery is proud to present “Spun”, a collaborative installation by Kevin Maginnis that seeks to explore the presence of a gallery space as an object itself by recreating the entire surface of the gallery out of non-architectural materials, then flipping this faux gallery space upside-down and rotating it by 30 degrees. This endeavor brings together the work of 20 artists displaying their pieces inverted to highlight the question of how the object and presence of the gallery has changed and what affect this distorted space has on the artwork it houses.

In prior works such as “Stair Flight Double” and “Untitled (The Suburban Installation)”, Maginnis toyed with concepts of appropriation and spatial relationships. This investigation evolved from an architectural contemplation to an exploration of space as having history and identity. The concept of “Spun” was heavily influenced by such contemplations, as well as the philosophy of Graham Harman and the Buddhist belief in causal linkage.

Maginnis’ manipulation of space as an object brings forth the hypothesis that space as delineated by the designed environment holds certain attributes: object as function, object as presence, and object as space-time. Object as function is an obvious quality of any commercial gallery space as it is what gives rise to the formal definition of an art gallery as exhibiting, promoting, and selling artwork. Object as presence is a bit
more nuanced as a single work of art can be perceived differently in the context of various gallery spaces. Object as space-time is the most subtle of properties as to be entirely invisible unless under extreme gravitational influence. By turning the gallery and artwork upside-down, Maginnis has subverted the traditional presence of a gallery while at the same time bringing us to question its organic functions. By twisting the gallery and allowing the effects of gravity to be seen on the artwork, Maginnis alludes to the distortion of space-time.

These notions are further magnified when tied to the wide range of artwork spanning genres, locations, and time periods that Maginnis intentionally sought to include. From established artists Tony Tasset and B. Wurtz to emerging artists Tommy Mishima and CD Wu, ancient Pre-Columbian artifacts to video and sound installations from the current year, “Spun” develops into a microcosm of sorts. Certain works seem particularly responsive to being spun. For example, Milwaukee artist Nicholas Frank’s “Greatest Skips (Inverted)” presents a vinyl record played on a turntable which, when inverted, never allows the needle to touch the record as the arm hangs limply under the weight of gravity. On the contrary, Los Angeles sound artist Banrei’s “as lyrical getting lyrical”, which deconstructs individual words to sub-consonants and sub-vowels and rearranges them in the form of classic Chinese poetry, is clearly unaffected by the altered space.

Interestingly enough, the physical installation tends to fall to the background as it is the artwork that draws the viewer’s attention to the concepts being addressed. In this manner “Spun” challenges the notion of “artist as hero”. As Maginnis states, “One of the most pleasurable aspects to doing this show has been working with all of the artists and letting them have as much fun working with this idea as I was. My contribution is the
physical installation, which is in a sense invisible…it’s as if the exhibition is a choir, not a solo performance.” Here the ephemeral is made solid, and the culminating result is to experience the notion of what an exhibition is as a whole, fresh and anew.
