C24 Gallery Exhibiting with Intersect Chicago / SOFA Online - November 6-12, 2020
C24 Gallery is proud to be an exhibitor with Intersect Chicago, a virtual art fair replacing SOFA for the 2020 edition. The fair runs live online from November 6-12, 2020 at Intersect Chicago with a dedicated VIP Preview Day by invitation only, TODAY - November 5th.
At the request of fair organizers, we will be exhibiting select works by C24 Gallery artists, İrfan Önürmen and Brian Tolle.
In his series of works on newspaper, İrfan Önürmen has recreated and reimagined sensationalized images from newspapers in provocative ways, while playing with the visibility of language and information. They are part of his ongoing exploration of identity and reality in the digital age. Selections from this series will be on display along with two of his smaller, figurative sculptures, all of which were featured in his 2019 C24 Gallery solo exhibition, Bust-Head.
In his Levittown sculptures, artist Brian Tolle takes precisely scaled models of original homes from the early 1950s iconic, suburban Long Island, NY town of the same name, and renders them as deflated or melting membranes, supported by various appropriated mementos of suburban life. Selections from this series are accompanied by a mini-version of Tolle’s life-sized sculpture, Eureka. Originally commissioned in 2000 as a site-specific public installation in Ghent, Belgium, the piece was later exhibited at C24 Gallery before it was moved to Ghent NY’s Art Omi, where it is currently on view in the outdoor sculpture park.
