On View Now at UIMA: Chicago’s Bauhaus Legacy

Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art – August 9 – September 29, 2013

In 1937 the Chicago Association of Art and Industry invited László Moholy-Nagy to head what was to be called the New Bauhaus, four years after the Bauhaus in Berlin was dissolved in 1933 under National Socialist pressure. This exhibit showcases art and design by students of Moholy-Nagy’s schools from 1937-1955: the New Bauhaus, School of Design in Chicago and Institute of Design – with special emphasis on the Foundation Course exercises. In addition, life work of both teachers and students will be shown, from 1937 to the present.

Representing more than sixty individuals, the vast majority of the exhibit is work that has never before been seen. Material has been provided through the generous loans from private collections, in addition to work from the UIMA permanent collection and the Bauhaus Chicago Committee Archive & Collection.

This exhibit is organized in partnership with T. Paul Young and the Bauhaus Chicago committee NFP

The Economics of Art 2013: Group Show at Vertical Gallery

At a unique time in art history, when art is for sale on more mediums in more places than ever before, Vertical Gallery, named Chicago’s Best New Gallery by the readers of the Chicago Reader,  has a new group show called The Economics of Art 2013,  that runs through August  31, 2013.

Inspired in part by the work and artists of another Chicago arts institution, Thumbtack Press (thumbtackpress.com), and starting a conversation on the way in which art is (re)produced, bought, and sold online and in galleries today, the show will feature original work alongside limited edition, open edition, screen printed, and digital prints of the original work.

Curated by Ben Schuman-Stoler and Patrick Hull, The Economics of Art 2013 endeavors to dispel the sometimes confusing world of art prints by offering art prints directly next to their original works in Vertical Gallery’s space at 1016 N. Western Ave. It addresses the questions that so many art collectors and fans ask when browsing for art: What’s the value of a reproduction of art? What’s a digital limited edition art print versus a screen printed limited edition art print or hand painted multiple? How do open edition prints work? How do prints of work stand next to their originals? Why are prints priced the way they are?

The show features a broad range of work by 13 artists from around the world, including Chicago artists Dmitry Samarov, Ian Ferguson, Julie Murphy, Steve Seeley, and Jimmy Bunnyluv, along with Anthony Freda, Dave Pressler, David Cooper, El Gato Chimney, Hernan Paganini, Klub7, Raudiel Sanudo and Ruel Pascual. Painting is well represented, as is paper collage, mixed media, digital work, and other mediums – all of which shows the universality of art prints in the art world today.
