    Lost and Looking
    Jan. 30, 2021 — Jun. 5, 2021

    Located In: Hyndman Gallery, Brinka/Cross Gallery, Susan Block Gallery

    Considering how place and loss affect us all, artists included in Lost and Looking confront the reality of our pasts and our futures. Places from our collective and personal histories help define who we are even as they remain fluid and ever changing in our mind’s eye. These artists consistently explore how true or fictionalized our memories can be, and how accurate or inaccurate recorded history truly is. Searching for and finding our place, both spiritually and physically, often drives an entire life’s meaning. The ever-shifting landscape, filled with false histories, be they personal or historical, drive these artists in their quest for higher meaning.

    Exhibiting Artists: Gertrude Abercrombie, Theaster Gates, Amy Honchell, Kelly Kristin Jones, Labor Camp, Suzanne Cohan Lange & Rick Lange, Bobbi Meier, Robyn O'Neil, Rodney Passė, Nina Rizzo, Alison Ruttan

    5020 S. Cornell Avenue
    Chicago, IL 60615

    Hyde Park Art Center is proud to celebrate the work of fifty artist-run spaces and organizations that fuel Chicago’s independent art scene in the upcoming exhibition Artists Run Chicago 2.0

    To mark the ten-year anniversary of the original Art Center exhibition, Artists Run Chicago (2009), this upcoming exhibition examines the core motivations, trajectories, and philosophies that have made the past decade more generative for new models of artist-run initiatives to exist throughout the city and suburbs. As they did in the 2009 exhibition, participating artists-run spaces have continued to transform storefronts, apartments, warehouses, garages, and nomadic existences into environments in which art can be experienced at its most experimental and critical stage. These spaces challenge conventional expectations of exhibition, discourse, and community, encouraging us to consider the nature of art-devoted spaces and their relationship to each other, as well as the neighborhoods they embrace and the artists they support.



    Artists include: Amy Cakes Danky Dank, Lindsay Degen, Amy Honchell, Hyun Jung Jung, Jonathan Korotko, Clee McCracken, Eleanor Miller, Elizabeth Schweizer, and Sandra Yau.

  • Review: Intimacy+Materiality

    Hand/Eye Magazine
    Alice Dana Spencer's review

    In INTIMACY AND MATERIALITY, a show currently on view at the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, Vermont, thirteen contemporary artists from around the U.S. use traditional labor-intensive skills such as weaving, embroidery, knitting, felting, crocheting and printmaking to create colorful, lush objects that often criticize modern mass production and focus on other social or political issues they feel need addressing.

    Chicago Tribune Article
    Artist Reception: Tuesday, August 23, 2011, 6-9 pm
    2537 N. Kedzie Boulevard, Chicago, IL 60647

    Honchell’s new solo exhibition at Lula Cafe, Soft Infrastructure, reveals a soft
    landscape—created from layers of cloth that are stitched into
    strata—supporting traces of failed (hard) architecture—dilapidated mining
    structures, hunting blinds, and communication towers. The improbable,
    rickety structures stand in opposition to the soft landscape that provides
    support to them.

    Topology, sewing, and elements of mapping underscore the parallels between
    the structures and functions of the human body, architecture, and the
    landscape. Honchell invites viewers to cross unseen boundaries and discover
    new territories while exploring the sense of touch in a visual way.

  • Swimsuit Edition: A Visceral Body to open at Swimming Pool Project Space

    Swimming Pool Project Space
    An exhibition curated by Lisa Majer and Liz Nielsen will open at Swimming Pool Project Space in Chicago, IL in February 2011. Relating to deep inward feelings rather than to the intellect, the artists, designers, performers, and thinkers in this edition elicit profound primal sensations through their craft. From the base to the sublime, from the personal to the social, from introspective to active, and from seductive to confrontational, the sensations and sensationalism of the works are ports of entry as points of departure.

  • Work included in exhibition in Providence, RI (2010) and Paris, France (2011)

  • Amy Honchell: Personal Geographies exhibition catalog

    Exhibition Images
    An exhibition catalogue with essays by Jeremy Biles and Becky Atkinson and designed by the Swiderski Institute is forthcoming in fall 2009.
    This publication documents Honchell's 2009 solo exhibition at Murray State University in Murray, KY.

    The work in Amy Honchell: Personal Geographies, Honchell’s solo exhibition at Murray State University, draws from the histories and structures of textiles, geography, biology, and architecture. Invisible patterns—topography, weather patterns, bodily systems— are the basis for her site-specific installations and drawings. Honchell’s work focuses on conflating the spaces we inhabit (landscape, architecture, bodies, and minds).
