SEEKING HOST EXHIBITION SPACE

At the end of 2016, contemporary public arts organization Gunder Exhibitions was forced to close its doors and vacate its home in the historic landmark Gunder Mansion on Chicago's Far North Side due to administrative restructuring within its property management agency. 

As this was an unexpected development, programming including exhibitions, lectures, and workshops that had been consigned and contracted for the 2017 season have been left without a facility. While we have been able to relocate a significant portion of this programming, we are still seeking placement for an exhibition slated to open in May 2017.

 

Gunder Exhibitions Seeks Host Space for Solo Exhibition of New Works From Installation Artist Alyce Haliday McQueen

Alyce Haliday McQueen is an installation artist, integrating photography and sculptural elements to produce fully immersive environments. Her practice examines the intersection of nostalgia and aesthetic fixation; she addresses these concerns through an interdisciplinary approach to questions of domesticity, feminine identity, and familial relationships. Her work can be viewed at alycehalidaymcqueen.com 

Of McQueen's work (F)Newsmagazine says: "Alyce Haliday McQueen’s visually jarring work is a show-stealer. The name and visuals [of Hurricane Odile] are reminiscent of...how something so life-sustaining can become a grave...with hints of an “Ophelia”-esque tragic end."
 
We are seeking an exhibition space, gallery, or alternative space in Chicago interested in hosting the work.
The intention is to open the exhibition in May of 2017, however, exhibition dates, duration, and compensation are open to discussion
