[CHICAGO-September 2008] Swimming Pool Project Space announces an exhibition of work by nine international artists exploring the use of painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and Internet-based coding languages through video art. Curated by Chicago-based art critic/writer Alicia Eler and Kansas City-based artist Peregrine Honig, this new showing of work rewinds to form, discussing video as video, and opening up discussion surrounding the current state of video art in the same way that abstract expressionist painting questioned-and expounded upon-the medium of painting.
Featuring work by Rob Carter (born in Worcester, UK, lives and works in Brooklyn, New York), Rochelle Feinstein (lives and works in New York City), James Gulliver Hancock (born in Sydney, Australia, lives and works in Los Angeles), Abhishek Hazra (lives and works in Bangalore, India),
Julie Lequin (born in Laval, Québec, lives and works in Los Angeles), Mioon (lives and works in Seoul, Korea), Julie Orser (born in Chicago, lives and works in Los Angeles), Luana Perilli (born in Rome, Italy, lives and works in Rome and Paris) and Taras Polataiko (born in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, lives and works in Vancouver and New York).
