This is a rallying call/ discussion to take place via Zoom conference over plans for J20 aka inauguration day here in Chicago.

This conference discussion is to discuss how we will do that if at all and hopefully form an SP contingent.

Opening Reception: Nate Otto – You Are Here

November 25, 2016 at Firecat Projects in Chicago.


Nate Otto

You Are Here.
Firecat Projects
Nov 25th through Dec 24th

You are Here — a setting, a place. You are at the center of the map, surrounded by buildings, streets, and fields — a neighborhood, a block. This exhibition of over 30 new drawings and paintings by Nate Otto is a rumination of place, and an exploration of cityscape. Imagined settings are twisted in stylized renderings, viewed from inside and above, simplified, and abstracted.

Nate Otto is a Chicago based artist and illustrator, and a graduate of Columbia college. You Are Here is his third solo exhibition in Chicago in the last three years, and his most ambitious to date. Nate is a full time image maker, and in addition to his self motivated work, he has done murals and commercial work for Nike, Facebook, Basecamp, Chase Bank and many others. Nate makes art every day.

MIhyun Yu’s SOLO Exhibition at GACI of Prak-sis CAA

July 29, 2016 at Prak-sis Contemporary Art Association in Chicago.


In her most recent series, Crying Girl, Mihyun Yu balances the simplicity and efficacy of crying as a means of both expression and physical function. Yu emphasizes eyes because so much information is gathered and delievered through them. Seeing with one’s eyes is a simple, fast way to communicate; however, this communication can also be risky because seeing is the origin of so much negativity, such as prejudice or judgment. Conversely, though, the eyes are also pure and naïve because they can communicate immediate, unadulterated sentiment. This dichotomy between the eyes’ competing functions further reinforces her interest in and exaggeration of them.

Mihyun Yu is an animator, illustrator, and painter originally from Seoul, South Korea. She combines her education in animation and illustration with her interest in manga and painting to create collaged works that use the image of a crying girl to highlight the complexity of human emotions and tears.

Address: 16 W Ontario St 1st floor, Chicago
