Jason Salavon: Spigot


Jason Salavon, Spigot (My Last Three Searches), 2008

Jason Salavon: Spigot
Opening Reception: September 27, 3-5 pm
September 20, 2009 – January 17, 2010
Jackman Goldwasser Catwalk Gallery
Hyde Park Art Center

From September 20, 2009 to January 17, 2010, the Hyde Park Art Center will present a new eight-channel video projection on the Art Center’s façade, by Chicago-based artist Jason Salavon. The large-scale, real-time digital projection will be visible from both inside the gallery and outside the building on S. Cornell Ave.

Though Salavon works with a range of material forms—from photographic prints to video installations and real-time software—the common thread in his artistic investigations is discovering unexpected patterns in daily encounters. Largely influenced by American popular culture and innovations in information technology, Jason Salavon’s work manipulates digitized material while presenting unique approaches to familiar iconography. This exhibition is held in honor of Hyde Park Art Center Board Member and Chair Emeritus, Deone Jackman.

Jason Salavon received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and his BA from the University of Texas at Austin. His work has been shown nationally and internationally, including exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and Dutch National Foto Institute, Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Salavon is currently a studio artist at the Hyde Park Art Center and associate professor in the Department of Visual Arts and the Computation Institute at the University of Chicago.
