Ahoy, Hoser

For Artboat 2004 at Art Chicago, a curatorial crew of Middlemanagement, Mixed Pallet and Andrew Rigsby have proffered a bevy of Chicagoans and Canucks, heavy on the new media, heavy on the collaborations. Perhaps heavy on the art cum science vibe? Heavy on the quotidian?

A bit of heavy Googling gives us:

A couple other recent shows featuring a few of these all-stars: "Collectible" at NIU (Winter '03), "Perfect: a group exhibition" at Chicago Cultural Center (Winter '04)

I'd initially balked at the thought of shelling out $35 for this boat ride on a day when I would be otherwise overwhelmed by art anyways, but this list has really piqued my interest. I very much liked Versteeg's 12 x 12 exhibit at the MCA (link above), Leinberger's felt manhole covers at Zg a few months ago were surprisingly cool, and I'd really like to see what Woodrow and Dunning have in store, likewise Duke and Battersby. Too bad I have to work Saturday, huh?

If you plan on boarding, however, you'd better hop to it: the presale discount ends May 1st.
