***Call for objects***
What It Is / Improbable Objects seek examples of 3-d printed items to exhibit later this month at our gallery space in downtown Chicago. We are inviting Makers / Artists / Engineers + Futurists to share with us and the public objects that they have produced on a 3-d printer. We are setting aside a portion of the gallery as a “project space” to display these items. The 3-d printed section will be titled “Improbable Objects” and will coincide with a solo exhibition in the main gallery space with Chicago-based artist Patrick Lichty.
While What It Is, is an art gallery (of sorts) – we are not specifically seeking sculptures to display, per se.. all 3-d printed objects are welcome and sought after. Objects lent for the exhibition can be available for sale or not. We will endeavor to produce some kind of printed catalogue or web based archive of the works. If you are interested in participating or know someone who should be invited to take part please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Title: Improbable Objects
Dates of exhibition March 22nd – April 21st.
Opening reception: Thurs March 22nd, 5pm – 8pm
What It Is
23 E. Madison,
Please email me at email@example.com to arrange for drop off of objects, if you are outside Chicagoland area and want to discuss shipping or printing options email me and we’ll try to work something out. During the opening we will have a number of 3-d printers in operation printing objects and sculptures for people to see the process first hand, if anyone wants to bring their own printer to make prints on the opening night – please let me know.
