I was asked, just this morning, to be a part of a collaboration with my friend Thomas Roach in a joint drawing (my part of the collaboration might look familiar) that will be on display on the 7th floor of the Merchandise Mart (222 Merchandise Mart Plaza, Chicago) as a part of NEXT Fair 2009, represented by Scott Projects (actually, to be fair, I'm represented by Thomas Roach who is represented by Scott Projects). The show's opening preview is this Thursday, April 30, and then will be on display from Friday May 1 - Monday, May 4. This is awesomely exciting, stop by if you have the time!
And, if you have more time after that, head on over to Scott Projects to see Thomas' solo show entitled Fun, Natural Fun (Take Off Your Shoes), opening Saturday, May 2, 2009 from 6-10 PM. I've always felt that Tom's work has always had a truly sincere quality to it, and he is always pushing the limits of image-making into new territories.
