The Cargo Space has successfully transferred itself from Papermaker’s Garden in the South Loop of Chicago to just under the eaves at INOVA in Milwaukee. Starting tomorrow, artists from Chicago and Milwaukee will descend on the space. Come knock on the bus door, or better yet pop by this coming Wednesday to check on our progress.

Cargo Space on Bad at Sports
If you like inane discussion, we talk with the Bad at Sports crew about the Cargo Space Chicago/Milwaukee exhibition.
- 1:06 pm
Music, art, theatre, and a legendary parade—there’s more happening than we can even count this month.
Thanks, Chicago Magazine!

Here’s a time-lapse of the trip between Steuben, WI and Amish Market Square in St. Charles, MN. 107 miles of rage-less road shot as we left the Acre residency, en route to the Walker Art Center on August 8, 2014.

The Cargo Space: Milwaukee/Chicago installation continues apace. On Monday participating artists met at A&D Gallery in the south loop. Today, the very handsome poster (Photo by David A. Brown, awesome bus paint by Houston’s own Dual) arrived today, as did the signage. The show opens next week, but that won’t be the end of it, as the exhibition will continue to evolve and change throughout its run. August 22 will see the bus move up I-90 for the Milwaukee installation of the exhibition at INOVA. Both shows are linked, will mirror, be distinct and will continue to change for the next month. If you’re in either town, drop in.

It was a busy day at the Poor Farm for The Cargo Space. David Krueger performed, Rahul Mitra completed another Box City, and Bad at Sports documented (and broadcast) the first meeting of Chicago and Milwaukee artists. It’s not all dominos and river floats up here. Although, we did that too.

Do It Yourself RV just posted a long write-up on Cargo Space. If Doing It Yourself is your thing, this website is the place. It’s an always informative resource!

A troubling little leak under the sink was tracked back to a busted O-ring in the cold water tap. Lesson learned: don’t over tighten. That’s how we cracked it.
It’s funny how something so tiny can cause so much trouble. The leak itself wasn’t bad, but we had to find it, shut off the water, drain the system, find a replacement, and then… replace it.
We’ve officially added another whistle-stop on our journey. There will be a lecture about Cargo Space on Monday, October 6, at Washington University in St. Louis. Check back for more details, closer to the day.
