Enterprising Machines

Event Details

This solo exhibition of works on paper by Urbana-born, Chicago-based artist Jessica Gondek includes an artist reception Thursday, Oct. 3 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The reception features a gallery talk by Gondek at 6:30 p.m. and music by the Derick Cordoba Trio. Gondek will provide an additional lecture earlier that day, at 1:15 p.m. in lecture hall L111.

Gondek often incorporates current technology using both hand and mechanical approaches to develop her work. Stemming from an interest in geometry, machine aesthetics, architecture, and nature, her recent body of work is sparked by machines from the early part of the twentieth-century, old trade catalogues, domestic utilitarian objects, Da Vinci’s inventions and war machines, Duchamp, and contemporary art movements.
