Addendumis the result of ongoing conversation between CAC and Soap Factory Minneapolis Biennial curators, and includes many of the Minnesota-based artists who participated in the 2013 Midwest Artist Exchange. A corresponding exhibition hosting Chicago-based artists in Minneapolis will complete the exchange, and extend the opportunity for social engagement by exposing audiences to the artistic practices of these Midwestern cities and fostering new dialogues on cultural production.
Curated by John Marks and David Petersen, Addendum is but one of many potential postscripts to , , ,(pronounced “comma comma comma”), the Soap Factory’s 2013 Minnesota Biennial. Intent on transforming the gallery from a site for exhibition into an active space of exhibiting, the inceptive exhibition was an eight-week platform for interdisciplinary visual art, music, performance, print, and discussion that surveyed the work of thirty-nine Minnesota-based artists.
Nearly a year later, Addendum will occupy the Chicago Artist’s Coalition with the work of eighteen artists: Luke Aleckson, Allen Brewer, Casey Deming, Kristina Estell, Katelyn Farstad, Isa Gagarin, Peter Happel Christian, Jess Hirsch, Jonathan Kaiser, Tynan Kerr, Andie Mazorol, Ben Moren, Michael Mott, Stefanie Motta, Scott Nedrelow, Natasha Pestich, Andy Sturdevant, and Pamela Valfer.
