The Glass Ceiling
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Jill Greenberg

Exhibition: Wed, Oct 26, to Fri, Dec 30 2011

Fashion, voyeurism, and cultural critique: daring experimental portraitist Jill Greenberg’s new series is powerful work about the female in society today. Her subjects – female athletes and dancers - appear underwater in beautiful pools engaged in a variety of ambiguous, dynamic movements. Wearing colorful bathing suits and high heels in complimentary hues, they urge one to question the how and why of their presentation.

In 2008, Greenberg was commissioned for a commercial fashion shoot with the US Olympic Synchronized Swim Team, which included two setups calling for high heels. The artist was struck by the absurdity of the styling and how objectified these talented women were. The stilettos, meant to heighten sexuality, in reality restricted movement and imposed a lack of control. In reaction to this shoot, Greenberg returned to her earlier interest in feminist art and created the Glass Ceiling series. Her swimmers, wearing beautiful but encumbering heels seem trapped underwater by their very stylishness. Eerily seductive, Greenberg’s work depicts the tension of her models coming to the surface for air while wrestling with the weight of the water as a metaphor for our culture’s demands for feminine role play and women’s struggle to assert themselves.

ACP Public Art Presents: "Volley" from Monica Cook
Grant Park
Featuring work by: Monica Cook

Other: Sat, Oct 29, 6:30pm - 8:30pm

The Public Art Project for ACP will be a sound activated, interactive animation (stop motion/claymation) by Monica Cook Monica Cook's first stop-motion animation video "Deuce" was selected by the Guggenheim Museum as one of 25 works featured in the "YouTube Play. A Biennial of Creative Video." The global online initiative is a joint venture of the Guggenheim and YouTube, in collaboration with HP, and aims "to discover and showcase the most exceptional talent working in the ever-expanding realm of online video." Cook's work was selected from more than 23,000 videos submitted.

Her work “Volley” commissioned by ACP and co-sponsored by Flux Projects, will explore human-animal interface: Interspecies communication; animals as totems and deities in early human cultures, etc.

This animation will be activated by the sound of the audience's applause. In order for the animation to play, clapping must continue, once it ceases the visuals stop. The participation with the audience is key, they must give in order to receive, yet, if something appears slightly questionable to be applauding they must decide to continue to partake or withdrawal, knowing that they could be equally judged if their interest overrides their ideology.

Thanks to i45, this Grant Park screening of "Volley" will include a screening of the finalists from the Guggenheim's "YouTube Play" biennial.
