Vernissage: Friday, Nov. 9 at 7pm beer, wine and soft drinks will be served.
Drawn Together features six pairs of artists, each pair consisting of one artist from Chicago and one from Switzerland, collaborating on drawing-based projects. The idea originates from the seemingly random pairing of Chicago and Lucerne as Sister Cities, but moves beyond that to explore what brings people together, how they collaborate across so many restricting elements, such as language, culture, geography, and personal philosophies, and how art can function as a bridge. The show also plays on the various meanings of the verb “to draw”, including to choose (as in to draw a number, name), to move closer (as in to draw someone to another), and to draw as in a picture. The pairs were created through the relatively random drawing of numbers that correspond to the artists' names.
