GALERIE F PRESENTS

Aside from locations literally setting the stage in a story, buildings, monuments, and scenery can enhance and develop moments sometimes beyond words themselves. Architecture specifically has the power to mimic landscapes, rebuild the human form and translate time into a lasting monument. Be it in film or on paper, moments and experiences can transcend dialogue when paired with an unforgettable, symbolic location.Whether it’s the overwhelming feeling of vertigo, the unbearable weight of grave conclusions, or the glittering burst of joy, these experiences are made deeper and richer with the power of stunning visuals and meaningful settings. Inferences made on the human experience through an architectural landscape, setting, or location are beyond compare and continuously perfected in film, video games, comics, and even books.

Galerie F is proud to present Justin Van Genderen’s “Location Location Location: Architecture” which features art prints of specific architecture and broader looks at locations in pop culture from books to cinema. Justin Van Genderen spends most of his time sticking to the ideas. The science. The truth of the matter. The intersection of Science, Art and Design is what occupies his brain most. His artwork in both the architectural and scientific realm seem to answer why we seek order in a universe that moves towards chaos, where our spirituality comes from and what human progress has to say about it all. He does all this while maintaining familiarity in these subjects through pop-culture, notable figures and scientific theories.

This opening night is taking place alongside a tandem show in Galerie F Underground! Required Reading: Curated by Sick Fisher pushes local talent into re-imagining book covers and artwork from materials they were once required to read. Join us for this spectacular tandem show for Galerie F’s 5th Anniversary on Friday, July 7th from 6-10PM. We’ll have yummy beer from21st Amendment Brewery and ph balanced hydration from Essentia Water!

GALERIE F UNDERGROUND PRESENTS

Required Reading

Galerie F is celebrating five years in Logan Square this summer with a double whammy show on the main floor (Location Location Location: Architecture) and in our Underground Space. We’ve invited non-stop local legend and our dear friend, Sick Fisher to curate one his dynamic group shows stuffed with local talent. All works in this exhibition are based off texts that the artist was once forced to read. This applies to books, adverts, and any other form of the written word.

We’ve all survived required reading, for better or worse. Some of these writings shaped us, surprised us, bored us to tears. Regardless of how required readings came and went in your life, this upcoming collection in Galerie F Underground is sure to bring back some memories. Come out on Friday, July 7th from 6-10PM (We’ll have yummy beer from 21st Amendment Brewery alongside ph balanced hydration from Essentia Water) to celebrate these local artists in our space that’s thrived for the past five years because of them.
