On view through February 22, Dis/placement is the first of two collaborative exhibitions between The Mission in West town and Aspect Ratio in the West Loop.
The show, which was put together by Aspect Ratio for exhibition in The Mission’s gallery, brings together four national and international artists working in photography and video, including current SAIC MFA candidate Orr Menirom.
From The Mission’s press release:
“Dis/placement at THE MISSION | Chicago assembles works by Ella de Burca (Dublin, Ireland), Cameron Gibson (Chicago, IL), Orr Menirom (Tel Aviv/Chicago), and Bryan Zanisnik (New York, NY) that focus on themes of place and placement. The work ranges from Cameron Gibson’s poetic and contemplative fixed camera view of an empty space while Ella de Burca charges the space with a mantra based on a 1969 performance by Dan Graham.”
Although the show will be closing this month, the collaboration will continue this summer when The Mission mounts a project for exhibition in Aspect Ratio’s gallery.
