Exciting News!

Second Bedroom will be participating in Artist Run Chicago at the Hyde Park Art Center presenting new works by Rafael Barontini, Laura Boban, Ben Brandt, Anna Campbell, Adam Farcus, Anni Holm, Kevin Jennings, and Edra Soto.

Artists Run Chicago, an exhibition showcasing the energy and audacity of some of the most noteworthy artist-run spaces that have influenced the Chicago contemporary art scene over the past decade on view from May 10 – July 5, 2009 in Gallery 1. Chicago has long been known for cultivating a strong entrepreneurial/Do-It-Yourself spirit in business and the arts. The participating artist-run venues have transformed storefronts, sheds, apartments, lofts, industrial spaces, garages and roving spaces into contemporary art galleries testing the notion of exhibition while complicating the definition of art. Coinciding with the Hyde Park Art Center’s 70th anniversary, Artists Run Chicago reconnects the Art Center to its beginnings as an artist-run space by bringing much deserved attention to those outstanding spaces that continue to reinvent the mold unique to Chicago.

Opening reception: Sunday May 10th 3 - 5pm @ Hyde Park Art Center
