CHICAGO, IL.- The DePaul University Art Museum will become a working art studio as part of “The Nomadic Studio,” a unique exhibition exploring the mobility of artists and their workspaces that opens July 8.

The exhibition, which runs through Nov. 21, is part of Studio Chicago, a yearlong collaborative project that focuses on the artist’s studio. It will be held at the DePaul Art Museum, 2350 N. Kenmore Ave., Chicago.

The exhibition is being organized by The Stockyard Institute, a Chicago-based project founded in 1995 by Jim Duignan, an associate professor in DePaul’s School of Education. Stockyard provides interactive, mixed-use spaces, making artists accessible to the public and providing for an open exploration of the process of idea-making.

“The Stockyard Institute has over the years taken over public parks and community arts centers,” said Duignan, who teaches visual arts education at DePaul. “Now we can bring those ideas to a museum context, expanding our visibility for new audiences.”

“The Nomadic Studio” will focus on pedagogy as a medium, transforming the museum into a collaborative workspace for DePaul and the surrounding community. During its four-month run, the exhibition will offer live music, in-house radio broadcasts, publication workstations and other creative opportunities, utilizing Chicago as a context for the conversation.

For the DePaul Art Museum, a fixture in the heart of the Lincoln Park campus, the exhibition will provide an innovative approach to visual art.

According to Museum Director Louise Lincoln, “The Stockyard installation destabilizes conventional notions of an art exhibition, but it addresses the same kinds of issues that we always look for in our projects: what happens when you explore ideas through visual means?”
