Starting with our next show “Quad Core” opening on Thursday February 9th, 2012, we will be producing exhibitions and events from our new location in the Loop. We’re working with the Chicago Loop Alliance through the Pop Up Art Loop to host exhibitions at the new space through 2012. We have invited Book Club organized by Kimberly Kim to collaborate with What It Is at our new location. Book Club features artist books, zines and other multiples. Contextual texts, art books, critical writing and other works will be available. Kimberly Kim recently had a hippie revelation that everything is connected and influences each other while studying for her Quantum Mechanics exam. Kim makes artist books, photography and video installations. She was raised in South Korea, currently lives and studies in Chicago. (via What It Is)

Seasons greetings from Transistor Chicago

Seasons greetings!
As the subject line indicates, just two things in this message …

One, The Reader will be presenting a free showing of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” on Monday night, December 19, 7:00 p.m. at Kerasotes ICON, 150 West Roosevelt Road. Free with an entrance pass, that is. And we’ve got the passes. Come in while they last (and they’re going fast). We’re open daily 1:00-7:00 p.m.


Two, if you have any plans to shop at Transistor this holiday season (or even if you don’t but your mind is open to the possibility), this Saturday, December 10 is the day to come in.  We’re having an in-store holiday market with 10 of our contributing artists here selling their wares, including items not usually in our stock. 1:00-6:00 p.m.  Mention this email and get (a modest) 10 percent off your purchase of anything from the market (hey, it covers Chicago tax).

Here is a quick list of contributors:

- Jennifer Burack / Zerobird Studio (silkscreen CTA prints and image-transfer pillows)

- Michael Darin / imvent (lamps made from tiny glass bottles and more)

- Laurie Freivogel / Kiku Handmade (fused glass coasters, kitchenware, belt buckles, jewelry)

- Rafael Rivera / r2 fotografia (photographs from around the city and around the world)

- Juana Ryan / Stellalily (photo-transfer tiles, coasters)

- Juli Sherry / Cordinated (yarn-wrapped instrument cables, iPhone cables, earburds and vintage headphones)

- Betsy Siber / Foxglove Accessories (jewelry made from vintage stamps)

- Paul Snagel / Works! (lamps made with vintage typewriters, projectors, and records)

- Michael Una / Unatronics (handmade electronic instruments)

- Rani Woolpert (jewelry made from ball bearings, compasses, clock parts, lightbulbs, plus art cards and more!)

Hope to see you!

“WORTH-WHILE”

Walk-In Installations Space @ 208 South Wabash Street

A Group Exhibition Featuring:

Josh Dihle, Garrett Durant, Paul Louis Nelson and Sighn

Curated by: Kevin Wilson

Every individual is responsible for finding one’s own purpose in life, in whatever manner that’s best fitting, and within this subjective process questions of personal value often arise. “WORTH-WHILE” is an exhibition featuring the work of four artists who explore this area of uncertainty with an emphasis on affirmation in art and the use of one’s practice as a sort of self-help ritual. Heavily based upon text and repetition, common themes in the work arise and a balancing act is created between seemingly positive messages and existential undertones of anxiety and sarcasm.
