Shannon Stratton is a founder and current Executive and Creative Director of threewalls Chicago, a not-for-profit residency and exhibition space. Founded in 2003, threewalls has grown from a start-up exhibition space to a vital visual arts organization that supports contemporary visual arts in Chicago through solo exhibitions for regional artists, residencies, grants to artists, publications, conferences and commissioning programs.

Stratton’s background is both in studio practice and art history, theory and criticism with a focus in craft practice and artist-run administration. Her writing on contemporary craft, fiber art and exhibitions has been published by Berg Publishing and Ronsdale Press as well as university galleries, art centers, commercial galleries and magazines throughout the United States and Canada.

With Green Lantern Press she founded and published (via threewalls) PHONEBOOK, a guide to contemporary independant and artist-run projects, now in its third volume, and The Artists Run Chicago Digest, a companion, appraisal and extension to the exhibition of the same name at The Hyde Park Center.

In the Fall of 2012 Shannon was in residence on the Critical Studies Fellowship at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.

(All Day)
Open Call for Collaborators

Date: Wednesday, Feb. 20th
Time: All Day (except 1:20-4:10)
Location: McGee 207
Cost to Attend: Free
Sponsored By: Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media

Incoming IEA visiting artist Kristen Lucas is looking for participants to collaborate with. Specifically, Kristen is looking to make improvisational video "demonstrations" of performers interacting with various props (such as a vase, Frisbee, a tire).

The goal of this project is to defamiliarize, ambiguate, and exaggerate the language and function of gestures and objects, reaching a level of communication beyond readability.

Participants are also encouraged to bring props of their own. No need to make appointments, participation is drop in, drop out for as long as you’d like. No acting experience is necessary, and participants will be showered with compliments and complimentary snacks!

If you would like more information, please send an e-mail to Devin Henry at dh7@alfred.edu.
