    As Heaven Gallery fights to keep space, we asked ourselves: what better way to show the power of Chicago artists than to throw a last minute art fair to celebrate Chicago’s long tradition of alternative spaces? From apartment galleries to artists collectives, our city has always found creative ways to show outsider art. Slow, The Franklin, LVL3, AMFM, Apparatus, Baby Blue, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Heaven Gallery, Adds Donna and curator Oscar Gonzalez Diaz come together for a show that treads the line of art fair and exhibition. They represent alternative inclusive space for women, LGBTQ, and ALAANA (African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, Native American) artists.

    January 21 - March 11, 2017
    Opening Reception: Saturday, January 21st, 6-9pm

    The exhibition, titled The Collectivists, marks a moment in time in which a vast number of artists are joining together to take greater control of their means of production and presentation. By prioritizing the group over the individual, self promotion and publicity function as collective forms of power. This current surge of standout artist-run spaces has become a democratic movement; and en masse, artist collectives are challenging the established hierarchy of how the gallery system and commerce function in the art world. The influence of the group, uplifts the individuals involved and ultimately offers new pathways for the success of both.

    Provisional HAVEN, Curated by Anna Novakov
    REFUSALON, San Francisco, CA
    Opening Reception: Thursday, March 19th

    Provisional Haven brings together eight international artists whose work touches upon the pleasure garden as a physical, psychosocial and temporary space. Throughout history, the pleasure garden has morphed and taken on the form of a masquerade, tea garden, menagerie, amusement park, playground, carnival or sideshow. It also functions as an imaginary landscape or a public space to play out personal fantasies.

The eight international artists in the exhibition all engage with temporary, momentary spaces and art as a haven for the unbound imagination.
