As a result of meeting Alex Chitty at this year’s CPG meeting in her studio, I have the exciting opportunity to curate a special project with Alex and Unison Home (where I work). The information for the opening of the project is below, and I’ve posted it to the CPG calendar.
Hope to see you all there! Let me know if you have any questions.
ALEX CHITTY + UNISON
THURSDAY, JANUARY 22ND 6:00-8:00 PM
Unison is excited to host an installation by Chicago artist Alex Chitty. Join us for the opening with light hors d’oeuvres and wine.
Alex Chitty alters found images and objects in sculptural and photographic arrangements that play on expectations of functionality and a sense of the familiar. Unison’s Wicker Park store will serve as a temporary site for material experiments that parallel ongoing ideas in the artist’s studio practice. Alex has selected domestic goods from Unison’s spring collection to alter, deconstruct, and reinstall in new compositions that reference, but are removed from, their original utility.
