Reuben Wu is coming back to LATITUDE! Our former artist-in-residence has had an amazing few months: a solo show at Rational Park, a two-person show at Schneider Gallery (with photographer Lynne Saville), and write-ups in Wired Magazine and The Huffington Post. On Monday, January 13th at 6 pm, please join us as Wu returns to his work with Schneider Gallery Assistant Director Nicole White.

 

Wu and White will discuss, among other topics, what exploration means in a contemporary context and how "unreliable" materials can be successfully put to use by artists. The talk is open to the public and BYOB, with seating available on a first come, first serve basis. 

The talk will be help in conjunction with LATITUDE's artist-in-residence program, and concurrent with Wu's two-month exhibition at Schneider Gallery. The conversation will take place on Monday, January 13th at 6 pm at LATITUDE, 2041 W. Carroll Ave., Ste. C223.

 

Reuben Wu is a photographer, visual artist, and music producer. He received his Masters in Science from the University of Liverpool. While currently based out of Chicago, Wu travels across the globe to make photographs. Wu is also a member of the band Ladytron. 

Nicole White is an artist, historian, curator, and writer. Currently, she is the Assistant Director of Schneider Gallery, an equal operator of the project space 3433, and an adjunct Photography faculty member at Wilbur Wright College. 

 

LATITUDE's artist-in-residence program allows selected artists a month of at-cost access to elite scanning and printing equipment. This access helps the artist produce a body of work for an exhibition, publication, or other project. Former participants include Columbia College professor Paul D'Amato for his exhibition We Shall at the DePaul Art Museum, Chicago; Todd Deidrich for his exhibition Luminous Flux at Johalla Projects, Chicago; and John Neff for his exhibitions at Golden Gallery, New York, and the Renaissance Society, Chicago.
