Curating, as an artist, is a process much more intuitive than historical or conceptual. It can be purely about formal connections. Or misconnections even. In this case, three Chicago-based artists working in different medium are matched, one-on-one, with three well-established artists from the DuPage art collection. We are left to wonder about the nature of their conversations—will Matt & Andy discuss gender issues? How about Kaylee & William? They will surely have the most fun together! As for Jessica & Mel, let's picture long gaps of silence interrupted by bursts of intense and passionate storytelling.
