This summer in MMoCA’s lobby and Icon, Thomsen will construct in the space of elsewhere, a site-responsive installation that plays with the way light and shadow interact with the museum’s soaring architectural features. Her thoughtful placement of large-scale photographic murals, mirrored objects, metallic netting, and iridescent substrates will simultaneously direct and scatter beams of light across the lobby walls, floors, and surfaces, delicately interrupting the visual plane of the building’s interior and transforming our encounters with light, space, time, and movement.

Produced by the Service Bureau at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, The FOLD is an editioned print series drawing from the wealth of Students, Faculty, Staff and Alumni within the SAIC community. The FOLD is an opportunity for these artists to experiment with print technology as well as showcase the digital output options SAIC’s Service Bureau has to offer.
BEFORE AND AFTER...Just completed a one week residency at FLOATSINK in the Art Department of Florida State University working on experimental publications. Having the hands on time to experiment with the RISO machine was incredible. I am hooked on the riso for life. Thank you to the incredible team of students and staff at FSU Fine Arts for your energy and time! Sophia Marin, Kathleen Saunders, Renata Fulginiti, Colleen Itani, Christopher Christian, Clint Sleeper and the incredible John Mann- you guys were fantastic to work with!
Aperture has invited the artist-run super PAC, For Freedoms, to curate and implement an improvisational exhibition and series of dialogues that investigates the photographic collective as a model for responsive artistic production.
The collectives included in the exhibition are EverydayClimateChange, Invisible Borders, Kamoinge, Piece of Cake, Rawi(ya), and WRRQ.
Throughout the duration of the exhibition, Aperture and For Freedoms, along with the participating collectives, will host a series of activities to unite artists, photographers, activists, and the broader community.
The publication GR-02092017 accompanies the exhibition WHAT REMAINS at Fotogalleriet, Oslo and includes work by over 100 photographers and artists. The exhibition and publication is inspired by the Voyager Golden Records, an archive established in 1977 and sent out into space as a coded record, intended as a greeting to extraterrestrial life and/or our future descendants.
