Warm Embrace Exhibition at Soccer Club Club
Produce / Event
Our first event-based project, Warm Embrace was a multifaceted arts program featuring a number of creative elements presented in an unusual environmental context, something that has since become a bit of reoccurring thing with us.
In this case, we were approached by artist, collaborator and friend Stephen Eichhorn (see LSD0001 and LSD0008) on presenting a companion exhibition to one, Death Is Not Your Friend, he was mounting at the now defunct Ebersmoore Gallery space.
Chicago-based Drag City Records – also dear pals of ours – offered up the shuttered, private “members only” soccer bar adjacent to their headquarters, a space since known by its Soccer Club Club moniker.
Eichhorn then installed a full second show of collage, sculpture and textile-based artworks in the non-operational bar space, taking full advantage of the peculiarities of his working environment.
