Judd Morrissey,
2011

Mark Jeffery and Judd Morrissey are a collaboration merging live performance and digital literary practices. The work, which is visual, textual and choreographic, evolves through context-specific research and practice and always considers the constraints of a given venue or occasion. Site-responsive concerns extend beyond the exhibition space to include local communities and online textual activity happening in proximity to an event. A given piece is a body of material that may have no singular fixed form but is alternately or simultaneously presented as large-scale public projection, internet art, durational live installation, or a performance of fixed length.

Jeffery and Morrissey have presented throughout the US, UK, and Europe with recent venues including the Cathedral Quarter in the city of Lincoln, UK (commissioned performance distributed throughout multiple outdoor sites), Hyde Park Art Center (Chicago), Museum of ContemporaryArt Chicago, Center of Contemporary Culture Barcelona, Bergen Art Museum, House of World Cultures (Berlin), Chicago Cultural Center, and the Ontological-Hysteric Theater in NYC. Both artists teach at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and were members of the seminal international performance collective Goat Island.

Awkward x 2,
2011

Awkward x 2 is a collaboration between two painters, Rebecca Norton and Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe. We began to work together in the summer of 2010 and our show at the Suburban, opening on October 29th, will be Awkward’s first solo show. Awkward’s chief interest is painting, but we also want to explore new ways in which to talk about art and further collaborations into areas outside of art as such that might nonetheless inform what we do. We’re interested in beauty, the involuntary, pleasure and complexity and in what results from two people working on the same thing in a field where works have traditionally been associated with individual subjectivities. Rebecca Norton received her MFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in 2010, Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe received his from Florida State University in 1970. She is from Kentucky, he is from Kent.
