Cargo Space is heading back to Chicago!

The Cargo Space exhibition at INOVA continues through Sept. 20, but it’s time to take the bus on the road again. After three weeks in dry-dock, it’s time to shake off the dust and ride the line back to Chicago’s A + D Gallery.

We couldn’t have asked for a better send-off last night than a Sara Daleiden-led discussion with an assembled group of Milwaukee-based practitioners. If you’re in Milwaukee, you can see the traces of this wide-ranging group-think, but you only have nine days left!

Cargo Space: Milwaukee/Chicago. IT CONTINUES!

Works in these two exhibitions continue to grow and evolve. Paul Drueke's Lucky Fellowship Poker Tournament went underground this past Friday, at a local casino. It turned out to be a noble effort that yielded only loss.

It’s  not the last iteration of of the Lucky Fellowship, but it certainly is the most recent.

Hello, Milwaukee!

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.

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.
