LOCUS


  • The Martin 2515 West North Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

LOCUS: where works collide unites 24 artists over the span of two evenings in one collaborative gallery show at The Martin!

Eleven visual artists will display a work that has been shared (sans artist, title or any other information about the work) with eleven literary artists who will write a new work based on, inspired by, or in reaction to that work. Their worlds collide during the two night showcase of LOCUS where they meet their paired artist and see the similarities, and differences, in interpretation of work.

As a bonus: live chalk art will be created Friday night with literary interpretation Saturday night for a bonus twenty-third and twenty-fourth artists!
