Appearing for the first time at an art fair as with their new name and Chicago location, for EXPO Chicago, SECRIST | BEACH will present a curated installation featuring new works by represented artists Hilma’s GhostStephen Eichhorn, Anne Lindberg and Liliana Porter. Also on view will be works by artists who will be featured in concurrent invitational salon curations at SECRIST | BEACH’s new Chicago location: Kristoffer McAfee, Jacqueline Surdell and May Tveit. Thematically, this presentation will showcase materiality as a principal means of artistic communication, while investigating conceptual ideas such as the spirituality of abstraction, our common connection to nature and the conceptual necessities of the human condition.

One of the artworks on view will be a monumental painting by Hilma’s Ghost (Dannielle Tegeder and Sharmistha Ray), Cosmic Altar. This significant artwork, developed in collaboration with a psychic medium and professional witch, is work of such significance, it inspired and won a major public commission that will be realized in New York City later this year. Another artwork, Say Yes by Kansas-based artist May Tveit, is a large abstract wall sculpture made from corrugated cardboard that was developed while in residence at the Lawrence Paper Company, a 130-year old business in Lawrence, Kansas. This artwork evokes metaphorical connotations from ziggurats to minimalism and machine-age living, creating a telling context for today.
