David Maljković & Karsten Lund on Crafting "Also On View" for the Renaissance Society

The Renaissance Society is a contemporary art space that has a very strong character when it comes to architectural design. Artist David Maljković describes it as a “monumental space that is one dimensional with a really particular condition of light.” The vinyl floors are so present—not concrete or plastic—they are tactile. Known for his collaborative approach to curation and attention to details, Maljković worked with Renaissance Society curator Karsten Lund for the exhibit “Also on View,” to select works that complement the space. The Weekly’s Manisha AR, sat down with both artist and curator to go behind the scenes of the exhibit and talk about the ways in which the space inspired the show. You can read the review of the show here: https://southsideweekly.com/look-dont-touch-david-maljkovic-renaissance-society/ Croatian-born David Maljković has lived in many cities in Europe. He currently lives and works in Zagreb, Croatia. He has presented solo exhibitions at Palais de Tokyo in Paris; Van Abbe museum, Eindhoven; Bergen Kunsthall, Norway; BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, UK; Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid; MoMA PS1, New York; and several other museums and galleries. His work has been included in prominent group exhibitions around the world such as the 56th Biennale di Venezia, 29th Sao Paulo Biennial, and two of the Istanbul Biennials, among many others. Chicago-based curator Karsten Lund has been with the Renaissance Society for the past three years and curated multiple shows in the space. Prior, he worked as a Curatorial Assistant at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and as a Research Fellow and Guest Curator with the Museum of Photography. “Also on View” is open until April 7, 2019. There will be an exhibition walk-through with curator Karsten Lund, at 3pm on Saturday April 6th. For more information visit http://renaissancesociety.org.

Tasha On Her Journey From the Divine Love EP to Alone at Last

Music heard during this episode was by Tasha. You can find more of Tasha's work at wowtashawow.net.

Class X: Who Gets a Second Chance in Our Criminal Justice System?

Illinois has been making moves toward reducing incarceration, but there is a large group of people who are being left behind. People like 21-year-old Joe Montgomery, who have been sentenced with Class X felonies, make up almost a third of Illinois’ prison population according to the Illinois Department of Corrections. Some say these individuals who need the most help are instead left with few options but prison. City Bureau reporters Sajedah Al-khzaleh and Bia Medious spoke with Montgomery’s friends and family about the hole his absence means to his community. This piece was produced in collaboration with City Bureau, a Woodlawn-based civic journalism lab. For more information go to www.citybureau.org. Music heard in this story is “Cool Curves” by producer Jumega Silverback. The bumper at the beginning featured Chicago scholar, artist, and activist Eve Ewing and was produced by Jed Lickerman.
