The latest breakthrough in the #IvyLeagueProject: Alex Roth and I are having a photography exhibition at the Ezra Stiles Gallery, @Yale. Opening this Sunday, Oct. 12 @ 4-6pm. Showing through Oct. 24. // “WABI SABI is an exhibition exploring the art of appreciation toward imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete phenomena both externally and internally. Alex Roth ES ‘15 and Chicago-based interdisciplinary artist Arjuna Capulong present two photography series in dialogue with each other, each with a source of inspiration that contrasts the other. Roth’s Earth and Light series wrestles with the ephemeral pleasure in reaching the tops of mountains and attempts to preserve a glimpse of the experience with his photographs. In Body, Capulong asks several people what they perceive as their own bodily flaws and challenges them to confront their insecurities by photographing their blemishes and enlarging them so they are larger than life. Each collection of prints is arranged in two adjacent grids resembling a diptych that covers the height of the gallery wall.” (at Yale University)

This was a lovely memorial for Barbara DeGenevieve. //
When I was first having my portfolio reviewed by SAIC undergraduate admissions, one of the reviewers advised: “You need to know about the work of Barbara DeGenevieve, look her up.” When I gave her a google search, I thought, “What a fucking badass. A wikipedia article and everything.” Once I learned I was admitted to SAIC, I knew I had to take a class with her. And yes, she does email a huge assignment for the first day of class so you know she’s not fucking around. I did my introduction to the class nude because Barbara’s the kind of person to get you to push your limits. When I learned what depression felt like, she spent massive amounts of time talking me through it and I remember her saying, “don’t get too comfortable.” She essentially kicked my ass out of the darkness which I think is exemplary of her badassery but also her incredibly kind heart. A role model, a mentor, a friend, an art star — there aren’t enough nouns but what I’m trying to say here is Barbara DeGenevieve changed my life, and I know I’m not alone in that sentiment because mine is only one of the many lives she’s impacted. Rest in power, revel in paradise. (at SAIC MacLean Ballroom)

☀️Strong autumn sunset vibes featuring a work-in-progress painting by John Burkholder. A Chicago artist you want to know. He also teaches ceramics, knife throwing, and rides with Cut Cats Courier. You can catch him directing tech at Defibrillator Gallery. He’s one of the coolest people I know. (at Garfield Park)

Something is brewing in the City of Wind. It’s probably beer - Chicago was recently named the best drinking city in America of 2014 by @GQ. I can drink to that. 🍻 What are your favorites spots for adult drinks in Shy City? (at Union Park)

Sunday Brunch is the hangover cure. @ Bang Bang! 🔫🔫 I used to live right across from this pie shop but never went until @yokothebear recommended it to me. Thank goodness. Of course you must try the pie, but be sure to get a grip of those biscuits too. (at Bang Bang Pie)
