Reception: Thursday, Jan. 25 | 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
This series of recent sculptural works from interdisciplinary artist Kaia Olsen explores queer manifestations of embodiment through playful entanglements of performance, material and intention. Kaia’s innately choreographic processes result in tactile abstractions the artist refers to as INSTARS, evidentiary constructs that reference their originative processes, while not equating to them. As such, Kaia celebrates the kinesthetic nature of change itself, using experimentation, precarity and an unsettling sense of levity to serve as the matrix within which each entity ultimately resolves.
Feb. 7-March 4, 2024
Reception: Thursday, Feb. 8 | 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
This exhibition of print media works by David Wischer explores the visual language and absurdity of modern-day technology. From the connections people make on social media to the bots and trolls of Twitter, Wischer finds inspiration for his work on his daily travels across the internet. Through his use of printmaking, animation, collage and installation art, Wischer melds social commentary, nostalgia and parody, which functions as both private and public humor for the viewer.

Reception: Friday, March 8 | 5-7 p.m.

International artist Hamdi Attia brings her story to the Moraine Valley community. That journey has been long and hard. Some birds and animals lost their patience, while others lost their lives in the search for knowledge and for fulfilling their own curiosity. But those who lost their lives during that rather difficult journey, they did rest in peace, and they did gained eternity.
