Chicago Artists Month 2.0 Virtual Studios


Phantom Gallery projects are not common only to Chicago but are in various Cities from east to west coast, as well as internationally. Each of these galleries functions exceedingly well in encapsulating their philosophy, promoting projects through a variety of traditionally commercial tools for reaching mass audiences.

Phantom Gallery Chicago attempts to prompt responses from people who might not enter a gallery or museum. Artists/curators are challenged to mirror more commercial methods of distribution that are the acceptable or normalized activities of the internet, blogging, to give its virtual audience a glimpses of possibilities as to what art should be doing-an interdisciplinary process that seeks to connect all parts of our cultural existence.

Each artist as curator stages an art openings in alternative locations, storefront spaces by bringing art events, open houses, and art tours to various venues, we can take a broader view in helping make the art happen.

This Phantom Gallery Chicago project is supported in part by: Logan Square Chamber of Arts, Crown Liquors Owner of storefront.

Panel Discussion: October 24, 2009, 5pm-6pm
Murhpy Hill Gallery

Fine Art Exhibit Opening Reception for Everett C. Williams, Frederick Ross Owens, curated by Nathaniel McLinn, canceled October 10, 2009. Why? Panel discussion on problems and considerations curating in alternative exhibition spaces in Chicago.


Art theorist Nicolas Bourriaud defines "Post Pas the art work created on the basis of preexisting works.”In the works of Fredrick Owens, Everett C. Williams  remixing allows the viewer to recalibrated perception, the fixed borders of ideologies to dance between absences, gaps, and dissensus, in the limits of society's sterotypes, categories, and histories? This subject position shared by the artist and the viewer exist not as another layer of knowledge, but simply as a capacity to move among the centers and the margins of hegemonic values from the point of omission.


Fredrick Owen's painting with its electronica devices celebrates the viewer’s liberty and dcapacity to remix their own media experiences.

Everett C. Williams's remix completes a project started by Dubois and corrects and reedits main stream history by challenging negative images of black women in history.
