Gallery Opening - Colin Matthes: BAND-AID Friday April 11th 6-9pm

Matthes_EssentialKnowledge-4web LivingRoom is proud to present our first show in collaboration with ACRE's year-long series of  exhibitions by 2013 ACRE summer residents.

Colin Matthes' recent work addresses economic and environmental crisis from a funny, critical, and perversely industrious point of view. For his first Chicago solo exhibition, BAND-AID: Instructional and Flood Resistant Work, he will show flood resistant luxury objects and a series of instructional drawings.

Essential Knowledge is a series of instructional drawings designed to teach basic skills for success in challenging situations. Frank Abruzzese (in his curatorial statement for an exhibition at Monster Truck, Dublin, Ireland) described the drawings as "looking to themes of resourcefulness and defiance rooted in both survivalist and DIY cultures, the drawings provide not-so-practical instructions for imagined and real scenarios ranging from Preparing Small Game to Landing a Plane in an Emergency."

The flood resistant works will maintain their value as commodity by surviving floods and rising sea levels. These objects are designed to have a calming and motivational presence for their lucky/prepared owner in times leading up to and during environmental duress. They borrow language and imagery from motivational posters, contemporary protest, distraction, apathy, and business. Matthes engineers the absurd by developing overcomplicated Band-Aids that present provisional solutions to serious concerns rooted in environmental and economic calamity.

COLIN MATTHES’ practice includes painting, drawing, installation, zine and graphic production, and public art projects. Matthes works collectively with Justseeds, a network of twenty-six artists living in the United States, Canada, and Mexico that runs a print collective, contributes graphics to social movements, and co-publishes books. As an individual artist, Matthes has exhibited across Europe and the United States. Solo exhibitions include Artspace Leguit, Antwerp, Belgium and Igloo Gallery, Portland, Oregon; group exhibitions include Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, Munch Gallery, New York, and the Haggerty Museum, Milwaukee. He has participated in many residencies including Hotel Pupik (Austria), Werkkamp (Belgium), and Cow House Studios (Ireland). Matthes won the Marl L Nohl Fellowship for Individual Artists in 2012 (Established) and 2007 (Emerging).

More information about Colin Matthes can be found at http://ideasinpictures.org/

ACRE (Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibition) was founded in 2010 with the ambition to provide the arts community with an affordable, cooperative, and dialogue-oriented residency program. The residency itself takes place each summer in rural southwest Wisconsin and brings together artists from across disciplines and levels of experience to create a regenerative community of cultural producers. Over the course of the following year ACRE endeavors to further support its residents by providing venues for exhibitions, idea exchange, interdisciplinary collaboration, and experimental projects.

Closing Tea for Outdoors - Saturday April 5th 12-4pm

Saturday April 5th from 12-4pm is your last chance to see the wonderful show Outdoors curated by Ethan D’Ercole. Attachment-1

In November Ethan asked participants to contribute 3 pieces to a show about outside space and how it’s used.  “I knew the opening would fall in late winter; however, I didn’t have any clue how oppressive and relentless the 2014 Chicago winter would be.  Perfect.  All this time cooped up indoors will make art about outside space more wonderful, more therapeutic.”  Please join us for the closing of this magic show which has finally help bring the Spring to Chicago!

Closing Tea: Living in Chicago - Dmitry Samarov - Sunday March 2nd 1-4pm

Stop by LivingRoom Realty on Sunday March 2nd from 1-4pm for a cup of tea and a cookie or two. It's your last chance to see Dmitry Samarov's Living In Chicago. We'd love to see you! mess

"I've lived in Chicago for over 20 years. For all that time I've drawn and painted inside and outside the places I've lived. Oil paintings, watercolors, charcoals and inks document what I see out windows and what I choose to bring home. I never start any of these pictures with any particular meaning in mind but the better ones are able to talk back to the viewer. They remind people of moments from their own experience. Books, chairs, dishes and such are what we all have in common. They connect us. By painting what I see every day, I'm trying to have a conversation with all the others who wake to similar views every day in this city."
