at the Chicago Artists Coalition
curated by Jessica Cochran

In the exhibition Live/Work artists consider the fluid ways that one makes home. For artists, the home is often a place where domestic tasks intersect with intense creative production. With no definitive barrier between home and studio (whether by choice or not) artists mine their environs or those of others to source ideas or to enact works -- a process which cultivates a nuanced intellectual and creative engagement to concepts of home in relation to states of being.
