Phantom Gallery Chicago, "PostPRODUCTION", curated by Fredrick Owens & guest curator Nathaniel McLinn, scheduled for Saturday October 10th, 2009 at the Wine Consortium. Meet the artists and guest curators at the October 24th reception.

Phantom Gallery Chicago, "REVISIONIST", curated by Gabriel Patti, has also been rescheduled due to location committments.

Both artists as curators will have some lively discussions regarding interfacing with business owners and empty spaces around Chicago.
Phantom Gallery Chicago Connects to Visual 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.
