January 17 - March 17, 2017AS FLUXUS ARTISTS EXPLORED participatory strategies that disrupted conventions of art and everyday life, the artist's book emerged as a way to anthologize action-based art, and as a site of experimentation with cognitive, visual, and tactile experience. Drawing on the remarkable collection in the University of Chicago Library, this exhibition considers how artists in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland reconfigured the materials and form of the book.

The Triumph of Fame featuring Marie-Caroline Hominal [Switzerland]
FEB 23-25 2017 @ 5-10PM1463 W CHICAGO AVENUE CHICAGO IL 60642
One on one performances scheduled every twenty minutes.
Hominal strips down the codes of theatrical artifice in a phantasmagorical and intimate one-on-one encounter with an audience member every 20 minutes. The Triumph of Fame is one of six poems by Petrarch which uses the idea of Triumph allegorically. In the poems, Fame triumphs over Death but is then defeated by Time and Eternity. The Williams Record Staff writer, Rob Hefferon wrote: "Hominal's performance showed a dominant control and manipulation of Love, Chastity and Death, only to be ended by a 15-minute time limit and an eternity of being emblazoned in the viewer's mind."
