Opening Reception: Friday, June 1 from 6 - 9pm
Evanston Made is an annual celebration in June that focuses on showcasing Evanston creatives. Throughout the month of June, studios, galleries, museums, workshops and businesses open their doors to showcase works (artistic, artisanal, etc.) and host events by Evanston creatives.
SIDE/LOT, an experimental video showcase of work by local Evanston artists, will present an outdoor screening will take place on the north side of the Art Center on June 1 at 8PM, in addition to regularly scheduled indoor screenings throughout June. Featured filmmakers include Jonah Charlton, Sabba Elahi, Joey Garfield, Alice George, Kevin Valentine, D65 Animators (Benji, Faith, Finn, Jahvon, Josie and Sophia).
As a part of this collaboration, artists Erin Hayden and Jeff Robinson will present a large-scale outdoor installation titled Sell Me Direct that explores the liminal state of parking lots. Robinson's sculptures point to the anxiety and heightened awareness we feel when in transition. Hayden's large banners explore the anticipation of acquisition. This installation is curated by Mat Rappaport and Anne Hayden Stevens, curators of the Terrain Biennial in Evanston.
