SONNENZIMMER "Cafe Avatar" Fall 2017 Diane Marek Visiting Artists....more

Chicago-based publishers, printers, artists, and musicians, Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi have worked across numerous media in their evolving decade-long collaboration known as SONNENZIMMER. Equal parts balancing act between art and design and a radical reclamation of all aspects of visual expression, their practice remains grounded in the lasting aspects of the visual potential of the graphic arts. While exploring the physical and conceptual friction between abstraction and communication, they examine how our humanity is being defined by the substrate of media. Artists Lecture Tues Sept. 26, 2017, Benwood Aud., 230 EMCS Bldg directly across from the UTC Fine Arts Center, followed by a public reception at the Cress.
