ABOUT THE WORK: The Diorama Show explores our fascination with three-dimensional, constructed spaces that depict an imaginary moment in time. For nearly 200 years, dioramas have tested artistic, cultural and historical assumptions about reality and the world around us. We invited artists working in very different media to explore the tensions created in the diorama and its impact on the imagination.
ABOUT THE GALLERY: Home Gallery is an experimental exhibition space run by Andrew Nord and Laura Shaeffer out of their home in Chicagos Hyde Park neighborhood. Their mission is to show emerging as well as established artists whose work fits their "inhabited" space in scale and aesthetic, with the intent to further understanding of contemporary art. It broadens the artistic community by creating an informal and welcoming social space in which to view art as an integral part of everyday life.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS: The artists invited to participate include: Katrin Asbury and Shawn Greene Jenny Buffington Elke Claus DeeDee Davis and Casey Roberts Deborah Doering Tiny Domingos Paul Durica Patrick Fitzgerald Conrad Freiburg Sarah Kaiser James Kao Drue Langlois Luftwerk Miller and Shellabarger Anders Nilsen Paul Nudd Jeremy Pelt Frank Pollard Kim Pence David Preiss John Preus Doug Shaeffer Bert Stabler Rachel Tredon Michael Weis Patrick W.
