LOGAN SQUARE — Logan Square artist collaborative AnySquared Projects will present SALVAGE, an exhibit showcasing nine artists, most of whom live or work in the Logan Square area, June 21.
The exhibit will be held in cooperation with G Studio Studio and The Plant, Chicago's vertical garden and sustainable food production incubator, from 3:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at The Plant, 1400 W. 46th St. in Back of the Yards.
Through paintings, photo-based works, and site-specific installations, the exhibition explores the metamorphosis of materials, objects, and/or concepts into a new means. Each artist reinterprets materials or concepts within their practice. Stimulated by the notion of transformation, each of their works express varying visions through conceptual methods, aesthetic tools, or through reuse of physical materials.
The exhibit opening is free and is on display through Oct. 19 featuring:
