USSA 2012: The Orphanage Project by Zachary Cahill

This past Friday the 9th, my first stop on the gallery crawl was Threewalls. There Zachary Cahills’ USSA 2012: The Orphanage Project opening reception took place from 6 to 9pm. From a bears head made out of chicken wire, to large pink letters USSA scattered across the room. Here’s a look at what I saw:

Zachary Cahills’ artist talk will take place Thursday, October 6th, at 7pm. The show runs from September 9th, 2011 through October 15th, 2011. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 5pm. Threewalls is located at 199 N Peoria, Suite 2D.

Here’s a little bit about The Orphanage Project from Threewalls:
The Orphanage Project, out of which Cahill’s fall SOLO exhibition arises, looks to examine the position of the ultimate “other” – the mythic Orphan, torn from any root or history and presumably set-free to self-author. Cahill’s Orphans are models, “modes of being” that The Orphanage Project wishes to make relatable through its study in human capital and the condition that awaits all. Cahill’s attempt – whether a failure or temporarily on-hold – is documented through a series of sketches and a few published conversations. For threewalls, Cahill reproduces a few elements of this project, granting access to Cahill’s long-term study.
