WITHIN. 9th Annual National Self-Portrait Exhibition

July 19 to August 10, 2013

Opening reception: Friday, July 19 from 7-10pm

"WITHIN" celebrates nine consecutive years of successful national self-portrait exhibitions. Over the years, over 900 artists have participated in this annual event which began nine years ago as 33 Contemporary Gallery opened its its doors to the public for the very first time at the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago.


Unlike the past two years in which the exhibition had no size restrictions and took place in the entire first floor of the Zhou B Art Center, WITHIN will be hosted in the intimate gallery setting of 33 Contemporary Gallery. The works in the exhibition will not exceed 12 inches in any direction and will ask the viewer to experience the entire show in close proximity. This intimate setting will serve as an invitation for exporation, discovery and conversation.


Between July 19 and August 10 of this year, 33 Contemporary Gallery will become a national laboratory for the exploration and visual representation of the self. The exhibition will include works ranging from representational, non-representational and conceptual ideas of the self. It will feature works in a variety of media.


It's coming up quick!

Here are a few photos from the final installation of my show with Cole Robertson. Jeff Stevenson did an amazing job as curator for this exhibition. An unexpected dialgue develops between Cole's work and mine.
