artists & participants
Using its walls for the first time, Monique Meloche gallery will enter summer with a group exhibition called mixer: a combination of gallery artists and other young artists working both in and outside of Chicago. Painting is prevalent in mixer, with artists Hans Askheim/Irina Nissen Melsom, Joe Baldwin, Rob Davis/Mike Langlois, Dzine, Gabert Farrar, Laura Mosquera, Christopher Patch, and Pamela Wilson. Both abstract and representational painting is featured, with some artists exploring issues of collaborative painting. MMG has also thrown into the mix, large digital video stills by Alison Ruttan, who references Post-Modernist painting by manipulating pornographic films-here an exporation of obese porn, and an object installation by José Versoza concerned with relationships between family, identity, culture, fantasy and failure.
