Still from "Body Tempest"
Allen Killian-Moore at 'Fill in the Blank' Gallery
Friday February 4 through Saturday March 19
"Body Tempest" is a new video installation by Minneapolis artist Allen Killian-Moore. "Body Tempest" is an exploration into cancer and its effects on the human person. Revealing the figure of Levi Nies -- who has just undergone chemotherapy -- this 13 minute video installation shows painful and lingering images of Levi pulling his hair out of his head.
Although the scene is soaked in sadness, there remains something triumphant, heroic, and deeply human in Levi's struggle. In a broader sense, this installation speaks to the fragile nature of life and the lonesomeness of our common existence.
Allen Killian-Moore is a Minneapolis-based film-maker, visual artist, writer, activist and curator.
Opening reception will be held Friday, February 4 from 7 to 11pm
5038 N. Lincoln Av, Chicago 60625; street parking available.

"Drawing Machine" -- Mark Porter
Mark Porter at 'Fill in the Blank' Gallery
Friday Nov 5 through Saturday Dec 4, 2010
The exhibit "Territorial Markers" features recent kinetic sculptures and preliminary drawings by Chicago artist Mark Porter. Inspired by Porter's exploration of the spirit of invention and created with a fusion of found and custom-made parts, the drawing machines serve as prototypes which emphasize the quality of the hand made object.
Over the course of the exhibit, his sculptures will expel a pigmented, soapy sludge that oozes and drips onto the walls of the gallery. Collectively, these sculptures act to convert the gallery into a workshop or experimental laboratory. Individually, each work serves as commentary on the concept of ownership and the act of creating an object which automates a process.
Mark Porter is a visual artist living and working in the city of Chicago as an Exhibition Coordinator for the Glass Curtain Gallery on the campus of Columbia College.
Opening reception will be held Friday, November 5 from 7 to 11pm 'Fill in the Blank' Gallery, [www.fillintheblankgallery.com]

from "The Globe" a book by Chester Alamo & Costello
Book Signing and Party
Chester Alamo & Costello's new book of photographs documenting the Globe Pub, and called "The Globe," will be officially released on May 15th, with a book signing on June 10th -- at the Globe. We would encourage everyone who has never been to visit the Globe pub to go at least once. At 1939 West Irving Park Road (733-871-3757).
The Globe is a photo and art book with essays that document the experience of watching a European style football match in Chicago's own Globe Pub. Since 2005, Alamo & Costello has documented the trials and tribulations of local (and international) supporters engaged in this world sport. The flow of this monograph follows the events of a match through drawings and photographs.
You will get the opportunity to meet Chester at his book signing on June 10th, at 7 PM, which happens to be one day before the first game of the World Cup.
Essays by Jamie Michael Bradley, Sandra Kaminska Costello, Aaron Patrick Flanagan, John Goodwin, Jamie Hale, and Stuart Johnston.
A video interview of the artist of Chicago Photographer Chester Alamo & Costello (by Martin Garcia) at YouTube and also some text about the book at Garcia's Blog.

The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research" by Greg. It's not Chicago, but it should serve as a model. "Best regional art site in the country" - Yankee Mag. And funny. Although accolades talk around that, like the Boston Phoenix, "dense, sprawling, and compulsively updated."
