Body Work raises questions about how we understand different modes of art-making. Alongside performances during the opening and throughout the exhibition, the gallery will feature physical evidence from each artist, highlighting the various sculptural approaches that augment the artists’ performance practices.
The opening reception will feature performances by Meg Duguid and Alexandria Eregbu.
Erik Peterson’s new performance Checks and Balances will take place Wednesday, October 4th, 4:30-6.

It is part of the Department of Fine and Performing Art at Loyola University, and seeks to foster conversations about contemporary art between local artists, the student population, and the community at large. The gallery offers exhibitions and lectures by selected artists and curators working in the Midwest and Chicago. All events are free and open to the public.
