Rocket Gallery, Michelle Grabner
This week’s guest at STUDIO Visits is Chicago artist, writer, curator, Michelle Grabner. When she writes about her own work, here’s what she says,
“My work consists of identifying, indexing, and transposing patterns. I also build elemental compositions that are foundational to the language of abstraction. These works take the form of painting, drawings, paper weavings, photographs, and stitchery. I am most concerned with enacting rudimental organization, articulating notations and embracing repetition. I believe that these dedicated activities are progressive and principled.”
Since 1999 she has co-directed The Suburban, an artist project space in Oak Park, Illinois. Since 1999 The Suburban has hosted over 150 artist projects. (thesuburban.org)
Join us at 9am this Wednesday in Nevins to learn more about Michelle Grabner!

Photo: Untitled (Grave), Debuted at the Volta art fair in Basel in 2008, Miller & Shellabarger dug, in close proximity to each other, two holes, deep and large enough for each man to lie in. They then dug a small tunnel between the holes that enabled them to hold hands while lying in the graves. (Thanks to Western Exhibitions for the photo.)

Next week we will be welcoming artist Joshua Bienko to Studio Visits, the Wednesday morning lecture series and LIVE interview show! He will start off the morning in Holmes at 9 am with his lecture: Desiring le’Con. After a quick stage change, Michelle Illuminato and Brett Hunter will be interviewing Joshua in front of you, the LIVE audience.
Joshua Bienko’s work combines the style of the Flemish masters with the ironic wit of an astute social critic. His precise execution of technique is more of an authentic mental exercise than an emotionally driven expression. What emerges is a heartfelt distance from his subject. His videos, photographs, paintings, interactive sculptures, audio tracks and drawings are nationally and internationally exhibited. Faculty in the Department of Visualization at Texas A&M University.
