Linda Warren Projects Artist Talk: Loretta Bourque & Rob Bondgren "Bourque, Bondgren and bourbon" Saturday, August 2, 3:00pm

Linda Warren Projects is pleased to announce our rescheduled artist talk with Loretta Bourque and Rob Bondgren. The artists will be discussing the work they have each made individually for the current exhibition, "Bourque, Bondgren and bourbon," as well as the work they have made collaboratively under the name "bourbon." Bourque and Bondgren began making collaborative work as early as the late 1990s. The "bourbon" works in this exhibition are recent pieces from 2012 to the present, and reflect the pact Bourque and Bondgren made that "anything goes," and any censoring is left to the end.

This is the last week with The Beast at Hyde Park Art Center! Before twilight sets on the final hour of The Beast, please join us this Saturday, August 2 for an afternoon of celebration and mourning in honor of The Beast by John Preus.

Beginning at 12:30, psychotherapist, Peggy Firestone will tell the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur, with Q&A to follow. At 2:00, Leroy Bach leads the Beast Allstars, laying down some grooves until 5:00. Hyde Park Art Center's Youth Arts Board will also join in on the action, along with artists Adam Rose and Antibody Corporation. The mic will be open for 5-minute contributions to wake The Beast, or sing him to sleep. Two films by video artist Marco G. Ferrari will also be screening throughout the day. Ferragosto (2013) and Pebble Beach (ongoing) each take a meditative look at shipwrecks along the Mediterranean coast & Chicago's lakeshore.

Say your final goodbyes to The Beast, which closes Sunday, August 3.

Artist Talk, Saturday, August 2, 1pm Nurturing the Creative Soul, Lucy Slivinski talks with Paul Slivinski


Sculptor and installation artist Lucy Slivinski works with found objects to create conceptual spaces of human connection. Drawing upon ideas of recycling, regeneration, and interconnectedness, the works in Soul Touch seem at once repelling and inviting, asking the viewer to consider the materials as objects of consumption and waste, but, more importantly, as tools that generate discourse and encourage energetic, physical engagement. In posing complex dynamics such as this, Slivinski's work lends a unique and innovative tint to notions of decay and beauty, promoting neither one nor the other, but rather intertwining and even collapsing the two together.
