Who Loves the Sun Chicago Book Launch and Celebration

Join author Fulla Abdul-Jabbar in conversation with Mika Yamamoto for a celebration of her new book, Who Loves the Sun, with performances from Samara Huggins and Sonnenzimmer. 

 

Who Loves the Sun begins as a study of the scientific poster, in an attempt to understand the object and the people who make them. Eventually focus strays from this subject to explore how the emotional, personal, and expressive leak from all structures that attempt to contain the self, be they molecular, disciplinary, or typographic. Composed of seven chapters, each taking a different form—from email to lecture to personal essay to mourning diary — Who Loves The Sun ultimately embraces the failure of form.

MAYFIELD is a multi-use space housed in a near west suburb of Chicago. It's a private residence & public site collectively organized by members of the Aguilar family. It functions as a studio, a museum, an exhibition space, a gym, a bath house, a car port, an office, a small press, a library, a recording studio, a residency, a badminton court, a fire pit, a dining hall, a deck, a stage, a kitchen, a workshop and possibly other things.

Gridluck

As we navigate life’s uncertainties some use regulated methodologies as a guide and tool for exercising freedom. Interconnectedness, spirituality, existential questioning and the human experience are manifested and methodically considered in this collective presentation. // Although it seems contradictory, uncertainty and societal bondages have been overcome or momentarily halted through the use of a framework.This exhibition presents works by artists who employ the use of the grid as a generative force and a lens to re-envision the world.

 

Participating artists: olivier, Morgan, Yutian Liu, Edra Soto, Brick Cassidy, Sonnenzimmer, Alex Bradley Cohen, Merryn Omotayo Alaka, Gabriela Estrada Loochartt
