Get It Together and Get It Together Again

Get It Together: Collage Assemblage & Collaboration was an event that took place in Chicago at Co-Prosperity Sphere. As an experiment in extracurricular gallery experience (say that 5 times fast), curators Chad Kouri of The Post Family and James Harry Ewert Jr. brought together local sweethearts of collage, mixed media and installation for a three dimensional freak out of color, form and material. The Participants of the show also asked the crowd to make some work of their own at a no-rules collage table in the center of the space. Everything created was then collected, documented and handed out to random people walking around the beautiful city of Chicago.

Participants: Chris Roberson, Emily Clayton, James Harry Ewert Jr, Rod Hunting, Matt Nichols, Adrianne Goodrich, Tyler Burke, Peter Skvara, Chad Kouri, Michael Pajon, Jim Kozar, Ed Marszewski, Ben Speckmann, Sarah Jeziorski, Ryan Duggan, and Richard Smith. Audio collage performances by Le Deuce and Rik Shaw.
