Pink Crocheted 'Love Sign' Stops Traffic In Chicago Art Show Opening 7/22
See artist Anne Nordhaus-Bike's (not so) absurd traffic sign in Dada-inspired show at renowned Woman Made Gallery's new show.
"I'm thrilled to have my art chosen as part of this important, thought-provoking show at such an important gallery," Nordhaus-Bike said.
Opening Reception July 22, Artist Walkthrough Aug. 19: Artist Will Be Present
The gallery will kick off the exhibit with an opening reception on Saturday, July 22, from 4 to 7 p.m.
Woman Made also will host an Artists Walkthrough on the final day of the show. Participating artists will be on hand from 2 to 4 p.m. to chat with visitors, share stories about their work, and reflect on this show's theme.
Nordhaus-Bike will attend both events, which are free and open to the public.
About Love Sign
Love Sign "stops traffic" with its direct appeal to "Love" (instead of "Stop").
Because: To fight anything is to give it power.
"Dada bypasses this dead end through humor, non sequitur, irrationality, and the absurd," Nordhaus-Bike explained. "In the face of what's hard and what's horrid, how about something so soft and gentle it confounds every argument? (And changes the culture.)"
About The Show
Woman Made's Dada show is one of several current exhibits in the Chicago area focused on the Dada art movement of more than a century ago as a way to address the world's current "insanity."
Woman Made Gallery is located at 2150 S Canalport Ave., #4A-3, Chicago, IL 60608.
