Collaborate and Create: Jenny Lam’s Exquisite Corpse

Collaborate and Create: Jenny Lam's Exquisite Corpse
Most curators of contemporary art learn early in their careers that the general public cares a helluva lot less about the artwork they display than they do. But Jenny Lam is not like most curators, and Chicagoans flocked to the opening and closing receptions of her most recent show, Exquisite Corpse, like seagulls to a sandwich left unattended at the beach.

Wear Your Geese with Confidence: An Interview with the Puterbaugh Sisters

Wear Your Geese with Confidence: An Interview with the Puterbaugh Sisters
In anticipation of their Art It Out show, I sat down and chatted with Danielle and Tiffany Puterbaugh, sisters whose brand of comedy is “experimental ridiculousness.” Before I hit “record,” we talked about how someone broke into their Humboldt Park apartment and stole their 11-year-old computer and their weed; how I heard about El Circo Cheapo Cabaret, where I first saw the duo perform as...
