PHANTOM GALLERY CHICAGO NETWORK joins the City as a Studio



Pop-Up movement in Chicago’s South & West Loop

Art Walks, Art Talks, Art Installations, Art on the Move

October 7—November 4, 2010

There is a well-established history of artists taking over empty shops for temporary exhibitions or community projects. In the current economic downturn, such activity is actively supported by local councils and artist networks. The Phantom Galleries aims to examine changes in current curatorial production and develop innovative displays concerning these physical storefronts or virtual spaces.
