I AM Logan Square’s December Gallery Opening: Memento by dropshift


I AM Logan Square is hitting off the month of December in partnership with dropshift dance for their exhibit, Memento. Visual artist Ashley Sullivan and dance film artist Nadia Oussenko worked together with dropshift dance to do an exhibit that “explores themes of memory distortion, perception, and recall, translated through the mediums of movement, short film vignettes, and graphic screen print design as well as painting on paper and canvas” as artistic director Andrea Cerniglia describes. Hence, this collaboration gave birth to the name of the exhibit, Memento.

The opening night of the exhibit is on Thursday, December 6th from 6pm to 9pm. Performances will take place and consist of solo and couples dances. Our gallery sponsors D’Noche and Beck’s will provide food and beer. If you haven’t tried D’Noche’s scrumptious croquetas and empanandas, this is your opportunity all while experiencing a dance performance and great ambience with fellow art lovers alike. 

Pop-up performances will take place throughout the month. Please check out the calendar below and mark your calendar to come check us out!

You can also come get a sneak peak this Saturday, Dec. 1st for Holiday on the Square as the gallery will be open from 10:30am to 6:30pm for you to view the visual art. A dance performance will take place from 1pm to 2pm.

 

About dropshift dance

dropshift is an emerging modern dance company led by artistic director Andrea Cerniglia, a member of the Chicago dance scene since 2002. The group works through a rigorous process of studio investigation to make work that energizes the space and creates an environment for the performer and viewer. Using specific directives of quality, imagery, and trajectory, dropshift creates movement environments that allow the viewer an opportunity to connect with what is abstract by layering the physical experience with one that is human and authentic.
