  • From paper and paste to hip hop samples and glitching, collage is a long-standing strategy for exploring, exploiting, and reordering visual and sensory culture. Collage has appeared in wildly distinct forms across all the major art and culture movements of the 20th and 21st century, from surrealism to riot grrrl to net art. This exhibition is open to femme artists of all genders working across all disciplines, with a specific emphasis on video, sound, and works on paper.

    Jurors: Ruby Thorkelson

    Ruby Thorkelson is an artist based in Chicago. Her work is an experiment in translating fantasy to reality, and she is fueled by anger, desire, and magic. Through drawing, collage, and object-making, she investigates the stimulating, banal, and often infrastructural as sites of power and exchange: nightclubs, domestic appliances, google image search results, broadcast news, brutalist architecture, sex.

    Thorkelson graduated in 2016 with an MFA from SAIC, and has shown work at Chicago venues including Hyde Park Art Center, ACRE, EXPO, Roman Susan, Chicago Filmmakers, Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, Woman Made Gallery, and Plaines Project, with a forthcoming two-person exhibition at Roots & Culture in Chicago. In 2016 she completed a residency at Ox-Bow in Michigan and was a 2015 resident at ACRE in Wisconsin. In 2015 she was part of the 6-person collective that produced Build Presence: A Movement Supportive Happening for Racial Justice at the Chicago Cultural Center, Chicago Home Theater Festival, and Woman Made Gallery. She also plays music in Chicago band Lezurrexion and teaches in the Liberal Arts department at SAIC. For more information visit http://www.rubyt.net
