ABOUT THE SHOW:
From lapis lazuli to Lactarius indigo, Painter Smurf to the throat chakra, Lee Mynung-Bak’s house to one-half of the Grecian Flag, and Palestinian Nav’i Protesters to Eifel 65, your friends at BEN RUSSELL invite you to wave hello (and goodbye) to all things BLUE on this, the first day of Spring. For a city steeped in so much historical BLUENESS (see: the Chicago Blues, the CTA, the Blue Man Group) and a discipline awash in so much azurite, ultramarine, and cerulean blue (see: Madonna with Child, Picasso’s Blue Period, Der Blau Reiter), it only makes sense that these histories would merge (at last) in the form of a five-person group exhibition – BEN RUSSELL : BLUENESS.
