Clutch Gallery is pleased to present 41.8757° 87.6244°, a group show curated by students in Professor Rhoda Rosen’s Contemporary Cartography course at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. 41.8757° 87.6244° identify the historic Michigan Boulevard district in the Chicago Loop area where the School is located.
41.8757° 87.6244° rethinks the idea of the dérive, otherwise known as “drift;” an intuitive movement through space based on a reading of interior and exterior cues; a wandering through space.
41.8757° 87.6244° is a card file filled with typewritten and handwritten texts on 3”x5” index cards. Each text is an instruction, a prompt to follow. Each prescribes a way to interact with the environment, a quest, described in concrete or abstract terms. 41.8757° 87.6244° provides cues for new methods of transit through spaces that are both familiar and unfamiliar.
Please join us on opening night for a special event, as our exhibition at Clutch Gallery helps launch the new Arts District of the Society of Smallness.
