AUCTION IS LIVE NOW: Donate to JDRF

 
 
Our online auction to benefit JDRF is live now and closes on Saturday, August 19 at midnight! We have so many great items up for auction this year – from a helicopter tour of Chicago and Ferris wheel rides to tickets to some of the best shows in town! To view a full list of items, please click HERE.
 
We only have $2,500 more to raise to meet our goal before our sixth annual JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes in Loveland, Colorado on August 26. It's hard to believe that it's just two weeks away! We are so happy to share with you that we have raised over $60,000 to date for the past five years of cycling with JDRF. Much of this is from our annual fundraiser at Lagunitas Brewing Company, which we could not put on without your support! These funds have directly contributed to milestone advancements in medical technology, including the artificial pancreas, which is now available for purchase by some manufacturing companies. We are looking forward to the day when Bella can get one! It will help keep her healthier and make her diabetes easier to manage while continuing to search for a cure.
 
We have an ever-growing "squad" of riders, and this year are so lucky to be riding with our immediate family, Bella's boyfriend, Jack, and our good friends the Osborne-O'Hagan's and Hart's. Having friends and family to ride with makes the journey that much more fun and supported! But it does mean that we need to raise even more money. Also, this year, we have upped the ante and are riding in Loveland, Colorado. While this will be an even more challenging course than we are used to, we know the scenery will make it all worth it!
 
Please consider contributing to our JDRF Ride fund and helping not only get to the finish line of the race, but to the finish line of finding a cure for type one diabetes. We are constantly thinking about ways to raise more money and be able to support Bella and millions of other type one diabetics worldwide. But we can't do it without you!
 
You can also donate directly to our Ride to Cure Diabetes page HERE.
 
Every little bit counts! If you have already contributed to our page, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
 
Love,
Carol, Howie, Bella, and Alex

Hilton | Asmus photographer, Susan Aurinko, exhibits latest work at LUMA 
(Loyola University Museum of Art)

July 1 - October 21, 2017


In 2013, Chicago based artist Susan Aurinko went on
photographic expedition to France. While in the 
Loire Valley, she visited a 12th century chateau that was once the temporary home of Joan of Arc. Captivated by the legend of the saint, Aurinko repeatedly returned to photograph the places where Joan of Arc once lived, prayed, and fought throughout her brief life. Aurinko employs layered images to explore the iconographic nature of this revered saint through popular culture, literature, feminism, and theology.


Three of Susan Aurinko's photographs from this exhibition are currently on display at Hilton Asmus Contemporary thru October.


Upcoming events: 

History of the Chess Queen (Or the Advent of Feminine Power)

EXPO CHICAGO AND THE CITY OF CHICAGO ANNOUNCE SECOND ANNUAL PROGRAM FOR OVERRIDE | A BILLBOARD PROJECT

https://us.vocuspr.com/Publish/521587/vcsPRAsset_521587_85019_cbfd0606-2c18-4ba5-891a-8806fccd9ac2_0.jpg                  https://us.vocuspr.com/Publish/521587/vcsPRAsset_521587_85885_3674cab3-c098-4456-ac43-bf0f2905853b_0.jpg
 
 
 
Citywide Public Art Initiative Features 12 Local, National and International Artists Across the City Digital Network August 28 – September 17, 2017, Including Newly Commissioned Series by David Shrigley and Works by Barbara Bloom, Luis Camnitzer, Ragnar Kjartansson, Paola Pivi and Mungo Thomson, Among Others
 
EXPO CHICAGO, The International Exposition of Modern & Contemporary Art, in partnership with the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) announces the second annual OVERRIDE | A Billboard Project to align with the sixth exposition (September 13 – 17, 2017). Building upon the City of Chicago’s longstanding commitment to public art, OVERRIDE allows EXPO CHICAGO to expand one of its key initiatives to showcase works by leading international artists beyond the exposition floor at Navy Pier.
 
 
In this significant citywide public art initiative, OVERRIDE will feature the work of 12 artists represented by major local, national and international galleries, exhibiting at EXPO CHICAGO, throughout Chicago’s City Digital Network (CDN) of citywide billboards. Spanning works from 1966 to the present, the 2017 program, curated by exposition directors, will launch on August 28 and run through September 17, providing artists from around the world an innovative opportunity to push the boundaries of how visual culture is disseminated in our increasingly image-based environment. Each of the selected artists engage with the digital network in a dynamic way—from existing projects that seamlessly extend toward a conceptual continuation of their current practice, to new works created specifically for this expansive context. OVERRIDE features national and international galleries from Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong, Paris, Seoul and Tokyo.
 
As part of a newly commissioned site-specific series, Glasgow-based artist David Shrigley’s (Anton Kern Gallery) NEWS bulletins will be displayed exclusively on the billboard located at 515 W. Congress Pkwy. Running continuously on this single screen, the piece boldly declares headlines of either absurd fake news or mundane everyday occurrences.
“The 2017 OVERRIDE program provides a unique opportunity for the selected artists work to intercept our everyday landscape, at various points in time and place—from the palm trees of Los Angeles against Chicago’s iconic skyline, to an image of live horses on the Eiffel Tower,” said Director of Programming at EXPO CHICAGO Stephanie Cristello. “Amid the familiar stream of billboard advertising, the strength of the 2017 edition is emphasized through the context of this expansive public exhibition, straddling ideas of past and present, fiction and non-fiction, here and elsewhere.”

Barbara Bloom | David Lewis (New York)
Matthew Brandt | Praz-Delavallade (Paris, Los Angeles)
