File Types: An Interview with Chaz Evans and Lorelei Stewart
File Type is a show currently on view at Gallery 400, which attempts to move beyond the general realm of “digital art” into a more nuanced exploration of the many iterations of commonly used files types such as .jpg, .pdf and .tiff. I had a chance to meet up with the curators of the show, Chaz Evans and Lorelei Stewart, at Gallery 400. We discussed the relevance of approaching new media with...

“Introverted Excavator”: An Interview with Jennifer Nalbantyan

In light of her solo exhibition at Chicago Art Department, I asked Atlanta-turned-Chicago artist Jennifer Nalbantyan about how the relocation to Chicago has influenced her practice, how dreams and memory have served as inspiration for her latest work and more.

“I Was Like a Boy in a Skirt Always Drawing”: Eileen Myles

“I Was Like a Boy in a Skirt Always Drawing”: Eileen Myles
Eileen Myles recently gave a talk entitled “MYSELF (pornography)” at Gallery 400. Having experienced it, “performance” is actually a more apt word to describe what unfolded. This performance seemed to punctuate the shows that had just wrapped up at Gallery 400—Kerstin Honeit’s “Ambiguity is my Weapon” and “Bless this Mess” with Edie Fake, Forced into Femininity, Robin Hustle &...

Hubbard. We talked about his ongoing...
