Opening Reception: “Reckless Rolodex”
Date / Time
January 13, 2023
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for the opening reception of Gallery 400’s upcoming exhibition, “Reckless Rolodex,” which highlights the lasting, though largely overlooked, influence of Lawrence Steger, described by the Chicago Tribune as “one of the most important, and most influential, performance artists in Chicago during the late 1980s and 90s.”
“Reckless Rolodex” is the first concentrated examination of Steger’s work to date, providing a landmark opportunity to unearth an artistic predecessor too-easily marginalized by his early death. Central to the exhibition is a stage, created by Edie Fake, where commissioned performances ranging from a “mixed reality love poem” by ATOM-r to sky cubacub’s Rebirth Garment fashion show-dance party of youth fashion designers. These performances will premiere alongside writing by Natasha Mijares and artist and co-curator Matthew Goulish.
“Reckless Rolodex” is on view until March 18.
