Living by Example

Northeastern Illinois University Fine Arts Center Gallery

“The apartment gallery phenomena in Chicago is a crucial component of the city's visual-art fabric, where aspiring artists, curators, directors, and scholars get to experiment free of the pressure to sell art. Edra Soto and Dan Sullivan, both well-known and well-exhibited artists themselves, display a custom made "modern shed"(Sullivan is a top-notch designer) at NEIU in which they exhibit their personal collection of Chicago artists (Soto is a talented visual artist). After the exhibition, the shed relocates to their backyard where the programming continues. It's quite a welcome change to see artists displaying their collection rather than our local plutocrats.” Abraham Ritchie, Flavorpill
