Infoporn @ Co-Prosperity Sphere
It has been a minute since I’ve highlit something down at CPS, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been failing to report on a lot of good stuff, such as their recent Level Eater collabition with Pentagon Gallery. This weekend their hosting the Infoporn Exhibition, part of Select Media Festival 9, showing infographics and data visualizations from a bunch of great designers including The Present Group, Cody Hudson, Plural’s Jeremiah Chiu, and many more. See it Friday, December 10th from 7PM-12:30AM @ Co-Prosperity Sphere, 3219 S Morgan St.
Jesse Butcher @ Swimming Pool Project Space
Jesse Butcher has done a few pretty cool installations in Chicago, such as the collaboration with Corkey Sinks at Concertina last March titled Surrender Dorothy. This time around, he’s looking at good and evil with text and symbol in a show titled Wet Affairs, which you can check out this Saturday, December 11th from 6-9PM @ Swimming Pool Project Space, 2858 W Montrose.
