There's still time to visit Chicago's Zhou B Art Center (1029 W 35th St Chicago, IL 60609) to catch Fixations, an exhibition curated by Sergio Gomez of Zhou B Art Center (www.zhoubartcenter.com) and Didi Menendez of PoetsArtists Magazine (www.poetsandartists.com).
Fixation is an exhibition and a publication of art and poetry focused on the physical/psychological preoccupation or obsession over an object or subject. The exhibition explores the subject of fixation as a continuos and elusive preoccupation of our human experience through written and visual art. The curators invited 24 artists and 17 poets to create works based on their understanding and perception of the theme of fixation. The result is a group exhibition including painting, drawing, photography and poetry. Each work brings light to the artist's own preoccupations unearthed by his/her personal fixations. Fixation takes place in a gallery setting, print and digital formats.
