Current Exhibition

900W x CSG

May 4—June 15, 2019


Carrie Secrist Gallery is pleased to announce 900W x CSG, our collaborative project with Taris Real Estate and their new building 900 West Washington in the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago. The gallery has curated a building-wide exhibition spread over 8 units and a 2-story penthouse. In conjunction with Shall we go, you and I while we can, the current exhibition at the gallery, we will be offering free guided private group tours of the 900 W building twice a day on Saturdays at 1 and 3PM from May 4 through June 15, 2019. Artists on view at 900 W are those currently represented by the gallery, artists we’ve worked with in the past and additional consigned artworks by artists we admire.

Located half of a block from the gallery, 900 W is phenomenal state of the art building on the corner of Washington and Peoria in the revitalized and thriving West Loop neighborhood of Chicago. The developer asked Carrie Secrist to create specific micro-curated exhibitions. The result of this collaboration compliments the urban opulence of each condominium. As a whole, 900 W is now being referred to “that secret museum in the West Loop” akin to the many apartment galleries that populate Chicago, but on a grand salon-like scale. This experience is an ideal opportunity for art enthusiasts, visual art advisors, design consultants, architecture buffs and anyone interested in large-scale curatorial endeavors.

Concurrent with 900 W at the gallery located at 835 W. Washington is Shall we go, you and I while we can, an invitation to view large to monumental artworks presented in a dedicated and enhanced environment by each of the gallery’s nine represented artist. The nine artworks on view use scale as a means to encourage a way of seeing with an underlying context of the visceral to accompany the visual.
