"It Varies"
November 23-30, 2013
The Storefront
2606 N. California Avenue
Chicago, IL

Organized by Justin Witte and Judy Rushin

Featuring artists Brandon Alvendia, Michelle Bolinger, Magalie Guerin, Anna Kunz, Judy Rushin, Olivia Schreiner, Rusty Shackleford, Selina Trepp and Philip von Zweck

"Rushin, based in Florida, sends collections of her work to different individuals around the country and asks that the work be set in small interior spaces to serve as the impetus for small events and gatherings. [...] Remnants from the exhibition will be sent back to the artist to be included in an exhibition at Flashpoint Gallery in Washington D.C. in 2014. [...] The installation subtly and not-so-subtly plays with various modes of creating and viewing paintings by tracing the contexts through which they travel. Does a painting installation stand-alone as a piece-in-itself? Does it stand-in, like a souvenir, for a multi-authored networked social process? Is the installation made specifically for the production of documentation or is does it thwart it? Or do the multiple private and public conversations supplant the unique time and place where the paintings are exhibited? The exhibition complicates the formal, spatial and historical conditions of a painting-as-group-project to highlight the varied points of entry implicit in the shared life of images."
