Push the Envelope is an art product and public program enabling dialogue between artists in Chicago, Thessaloniki, and Athens. The participating artists were selected after an open call by an international jury.Over the span of three weeks DYNAMO project-space in Thessaloniki, Greece and Spoke in Chicago, U.S.A. will host the commencement of dialogue between selected artists. The conversation will spring from an open, collaborative process and will be used to identify topics relevant to the group. Invited curators, artists, and historians will lead discussions during weekends for the duration of the DYNAMO exhibition.
Initially, artists will display past work at DYNAMO (preview: April 23rd 20:30), while an exchange of knowledge, ideas, and influences will spur each artist to create new work in response to discussion, as they each contend with where they situate themselves politically in contemporary culture and within their historical past. The exhibition space will reflect the organic nature of conversation, continually evolving and displaying evidence of discussions along side with both past and newly created work. The process will be evident, presented at DYNAMO just before the end of the exhibition (opening: May 11th 20:30).
