The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Visiting Artists Program presents:

Christiane Baumgartner Monday, February 23, 6:00 p.m. SAIC Columbus Auditorium, 280 S. Columbus Dr.

German artist Christiane Baumgartner explores the convergence of speed and standstill through her monumental monochrome woodcuts taken from her own video stills. Speed and the passage of time are recurring themes throughout her work. Through her selection and transformation of a video still, she creates a unique woodcut that brings experience and weight to an otherwise unexperienced moment. Baumgartner's work has been exhibited internationally and can be found in more than 40 public collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Please join us in the Glass Curtain Gallery for the opening reception of Invisible, 5-8pm.

Invisible explores the extreme edge of legibility in works by Chicago artists. While many of the works in Invisible are large in scale, the scope of work will only gradually emerge as visitors make their way through installations of sculpture, painting, video and drawing. The exhibition explores the visual delight and intellectual intrigue we find in the discovery of works that are both material and conceptual.

Artists include Paola Cabal, C. C. Ann Chen, Jessica Hyatt, Luftwerk and Kathleen McCarthy. Invisible is curated by Annie Morse.

Additional programming will follow the opening reception.

The Glass Curtain Gallery is located at 1104 S. Wabash, 1st Floor
