Let There Be Geo Exhibition



Cody Hudson, 2009, Acid Tracks, mixed media installation

Let There Be Geo is an art exhibition at Columbia College Chicago’s Leviton A+D Gallery that surveys the art of contemporary artists who use geometric form in their work. While employing geometric form in art is not a new phenomenon, geo forms are appearing in some of the most aesthetically progressive work being made today. Twenty-first century responses to geometric form make use of a variety of styles and media, from painting and video to photography and sculpture. The works in Let There Be Geo examine today’s incarnation of geometric form.

"The persistence of artistic geometric forms hints at a continuum, or a legacy, or some coy deity made present in this world by his shadow, cast as a polygon, on the eyeball of the artist," writes Jason Foumberg in the exhibition's essay.

Participating artists include: Jesse Brown, Nick Butcher, Jeff Canham, Jacob Hashimoto, Maya Hayuk, Cody Hudson, Steven Husby, Barbara Kasten, Chad Kouri, Nadine Nakanishi, John Parot, Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt, Geoffrey Todd Smith, Jason Urban and Vanesa Zendejas.

Let There Be Geo is curated by Elizabeth Burke-Dain.
