The Plaines Project
1822 S Desplaines St Chicago, IL

Make Space is a site dedicated to featuring contemporary artists and their practice, through interviews, studio visits, reviews, and other conversations. By collaborating with the artists, we hope to create and expand the dialogue between artists and a larger audience.

Until now, Make Space has only existed online. For the exhibition at The Plaines Project, previously featured artists were invited to exhibit original images of their works. The images were sent via e-mail and printed on copy paper. Although the works are low quality, non-archival representations, they are impressive experienced in person rather than through a screen. This exhibition showcases a range of artists on Make Space, as well as Lynnette’s role as the organizer.
