The BODY at kasia kay art projects

Opening on October 29 at kasia kay art projects is The BODY, an exhibition of new sculptures by Claudia Hart and paintings by Rim LeeNothing in the exhbition is quite what it seems: Hart and Lee both explore feminism, the human body and identity from unique perspectives, with Hart's sculptures seeming half like video-games, and half like real life.  Lee's paintings look almost like photographs - the wet, messy clay on the figures depicted looks fresh enough to make a mess. Technology plays a role in each body of work, and the show is certainly new and fresh.


On Friday, November 5 Joseph Ravens performs Kattywampus at the gallery, in conjunction with the 21st annual edition of the Chicago Humanities Festival 2010.  Performances are a lively way for gallery-goers to revisit a gallery once the opening has taken place.  Kattywampus will offer a chance for visitors to meet and interact with the artist and to have mutliple experiences in the gallery, as gallery owner Kasia Kay is always one to experiment with various endeavors and projects with her artists.  November 5 will be the start to a busy art weekend because of SOFA Chicago, and it's a great occasion to visit this West Loop space.
