Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art opens exhibitions by Kevin Blythe Sampson and C.T. McClusky
Sampson Proposal: The sculpture is a boat-like vehicle that will be built in three distinctively different sections.
CHICAGO, IL.- For the first exhibition of 2013, Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art presents Kevin Blythe Sampson: An Ill Wind Blowing from January 11 - April 20.

Intuit hosts artist in residence, Kevin Blythe Sampson, over a two week period as he creates a site-specific vehicle in Intuit's Main Gallery using recycled materials. The sculpture will evolve over Sampson's two week residency as Intuit encourages the general public to interact with Sampson while he is creating.

The sculpture is a boat-like vehicle that will be built in three distinctively different sections. The front will represent major corporations, the middle of the boat will contain objects that represent the liberal elite and the rear section of the boat will represent the working poor and homeless. "After thinking about the current state of politics in the United States and the current national conversation on civility, I have decided to build an environment that contains a symbolic vessel that will be powered by the wind that is blowing across the world," says Sampson. The title of the exhibition, An Ill Wind Blowing, is in reference to the history of protest, the state of America today and the popular song "Blowin' in the Wind" by Bob Dylan.

The Circus Collages of C.T. McClusky
Intuit is also presenting The Circus Collages of C.T. McClusky from January 11 - May 25.

We know very little of C.T. McClusky's biography except that he worked as a circus clown and spent the winter seasons of 1940-1960 at a boarding house in Oakland, California. Working with found materials, McClusky completed 53 collages on shirt cardboard incorporating foil, string, photographic illustrations and cuttings from animal cracker boxes. His evocative images are sentimental reflections on his time in the circus and depicts daily circus life creating windows onto a world peopled by bally broads, musicians, trapeze artists, and lion tamers.

The work was discovered in a tattered black suitcase by John Turner at the Alameda Penny Market Swap Meet in California 1975. The Circus Collages of C.T. McClusky, featuring 24 collages and the suitcase they were found in, will be the first solo exhibition of McClusky's work in Chicago.
