Vincent Finazzo, friend of the Happy Collaborationists and rather nifty fellow, has put together a show for the Southern Graphics Counsel titled Global Print. The Happy Collaborationists will be there and magazines will be available!
"Global Print examines globalization and its effects on everyone. Artist exhibit works of all media that address globalization, cultural destruction and rebirth, and the phenomenon of cross-cultural and global information exchange. The work pushes the boundaries of print processes, explores new techniques, and encourages the viewer to think of art in a global manner." ~Vincent Finazzo
Please join us March 27th From 6-9pm At 623 S. Wabash, First Floor Hokin gallery.
The Happy Collaborationists is a Chicago based curatorial and artistic entity consisting of Anna Trier, Hadley Vogel, and Meredith Weber. Our focus as “Happy C.” has been to provide a venue for the creation and exhibition of performance, installation and new media derived works. Striving to facilitate the exhibition of projects and artists we believe in through collaboration and dissemination of our philosophy through experience and incorporation. As a collective we exist in solidarity and express this through the donning of blue wigs, creating a visual moniker. Our first manifestation was through a quarterly publication that has evolved into a catalogue of our curated series to serve as a record of the ephemeral events we have hosted. In our most recent endeavor, our curative nature was more expressly connected to our performative practice and propelled us towards a new mode of communication and bridged the gap between art and art events – curation as art.
