With a shared interest in how the cosmos and the scientific fields of physics and cosmology continue to inspire artistic production, Steven L. Bridges and Third Object join forces to create SATELLITES. This one-night event celebrates two recent exhibitions in Chicago dealing with the cultural import of the cosmos: Cosmosis, at the Hyde Park Art Center, and Were the Eye Not Sunlike, at Fernwey Gallery and on ACRE TV. Further extending the reach of these two distinct yet interrelated exhibitions, a program of performances and curated videos will take place throughout the evening, as well as an ACRE TV watching party featuring work from the video stream of Were the Eye Not Sunlike. The evening’s itinerary traces different artistic strategies of exploring how the cosmos acts as a screen onto which the many desires, fears, and wonders of humanity are projected.
