Dealing with New Demands

Art you an artist? Art patron? Are you happy? Wondering if the quality of your life is good? Dealing With New Demands explores these very questions. Curated by Jennifer Mills, this group exhibition is currently on display at The Comfort Station, a gallery and community space located in Logan Square. It is just one component of a much lager program entitled, The Happiness Project curated by Tricia Van Eck. At the opening reception on Saturday, November 5th a one-night-only performance took place by Jennifer Mills and her art consultant trio encouraging the audience to participate by purchasing art on the spot.
 

Below is a slide show displaying a series of photographs from the opening reception. You will see that many of the photographs simply show red dots or numbers. These were intended to demonstrate a real-time exchange of the purchase of affordable artwork on display only to further encourage more of the same.




For a further look into The Happiness Project and Dealing With New Demands check back next week for a more comprehensive recap of the exhibition including a brief interview with Tricia Van Eck about her project. The exhibition will be on display at The Comfort Station with open gallery hours from 12-4pm on Saturdays and Sundays for the month of November.
