Artists Run Chicago

I came across this Cynthia Pelayo article in f-news. It talks about the show down at the Hyde Park Art Center, and I’ve included the first paragraph here.

Chicago, a city teeming with space, artists and grounded in a midwestern Do-It-Yourself attitude, is a natural home for alternative exhibition spaces. From May 10 to July 5, 2009, the Hyde Park Art Center is highlighting the work coming out of exhibition spaces run by artists. The spaces featured in Hyde Park Art Center’s Artists Run Chicago range from apartments, lofts, garages and warehouses, to contemporary galleries – all of whom challenge the idea of what an exhibition venue should be. The program includes over thirty-five exhibitors including artLedge, Fraction Workspace, LiveBox, Margin Gallery, the Green Lantern Gallery and many more. The event also features tours of the artist-run spaces, presentations, panel discussions, and performances.
