What It Is is a roving + occasionally domestic exhibition space founded by artists Tom Burtonwood and Holly Holmes. We have hosted, organized and instigated over twenty five exhibitions since we started the project sometime in 2009 at our abode in sunny Oak Park , IL. We have worked with some amazing artists to produce some crazy, engaging, mind blowing projects and installations. A while back the marvelous Bad at Sports podcast connected with us and we talked about our motivations for running the space and some of the hijinks we have gotten up to, please check it out – as it saves me typing a whole lot more here. A big thank you to everyone who has supported us through the years(!) especially all the artists who have put time and resources into making it happen.
