Chicago was amazing! Spent time with Torkwase Dyson at Studio South Zero, her solar-powered workspace at The Dorchester Project. A video performance artist new to the city, Jefferson Pinder shared the skinny on his upcoming performance project. FAI will feature each of the artists on Art Talk in the next few weeks.
Explored the city with stops in Hyde Park, South Side, West Loop, Downtown, the Art Institute of Chicago and Millenium Park. No matter how difficult it must be to keep that sculpture shiny, Anish Kapoor’s wondrous Cloud Gate is worth every effort. If you’re headed to Chicago between now and 23 December, take time to see Unlimited Ocean, Wolfgang Laib’s sublime installation in SAIC’s Sullivan Galleries.
