More on RISK

RISK: Empathy, Art, and Social Practice Image of installation/screening event Not In Another Place, But This Place… (Happiness) as part of Risky Encounters at 6018 North One part exhibit and one part event series, RISK is a terrifically exciting exploration of socially engagement and the arts. Not only that, it features many artists close to our hearts, including Alberto Aguilar, Jim Duignan,Faheem Majeed, and Cheryl Pope, among many others. So perhaps it’s no surprise that we put RISK on our weekly picks back in February when it opened. However, what we weren’t anticipating was this fascinating interview with curators Neysa Page-Lieberman and Amy Mooney. One of Mooney’s former students, Connor Moynihan, conducted it, but was unable to publish it on CAA as originally planned. Fortunately for us, Page-Lieberman reached out to us about running the interview on Sixty instead, and we happily agreed. So please enjoy this peek inside two electrically creative minds, and make sure to visit Columbia College’s Glass Curtain Gallery by April 26 to see RISK before it goes down. – Reuben Westmaas, ed.

Opening Exhibition: RISK: Empathy, Art And Social Practice

February 10 – April 26, 2014 Opening Reception: February 13, 5:30 – 8:30pm RISK considers the interdependent role of empathy and risk in socially engaged art as practiced by Chicago contemporary artists. The exhibition features artists who work in a public arena to foster connections between individuals and to activate communities. Their work invites the outside in, blurs the lines of public/private, reveals our mutual dependencies and effects social change. The “success” or “failure” of these relationship-driven projects, however, can never be guaranteed, as this porous, process-based art form exists in unpredictable, shifting environments. The works in RISK are divergent in medium, content and scope, but all share an interest in initiating and negotiating relationships through personal interaction. Projects range from a community Shack built in the gallery to the staging of an actual Wedding Party to herbal remedy offerings from an Anxiety Garden and vintage Tintype Portrait sessions. Working with cultural partners and sites across the city, RISK highlights some of the most exciting practice emerging in this field and explores artists’ motivations and viewers’ expectations for socially engaged art.
