If you are in the Chicago area, you can find art pieces by two Just Seeders – Erik Ruin and myself, Favianna – at the COPY JAM coming on July 30th to Chicago! Its being organized by the awesome blog, PRINTERESTING. This is one of more cooler art show concepts I have run into recently. I love the idea of using an old copy machine to reproduce work. It’s great to see how folks can interact with the artwork by taking copies of it.

COPY JAM! 2: TEXT EDITION
A Printeresting Curatorial Project
at The Printers’ Ball
The Luddington Building
1104 S. Wabash Ave
One Night Only!
Friday, July 30, 2010, 6-11 PM (makin’ copies from 6-9 PM)
This Summer, PRINTERESTING wants to meet our readers in the Windy City! On Friday July 30, we will host an encore performance of our Copy Jam! at the Printers’ Ball at Luddington Building in beautiful, downtown Chicago, IL. The Ball is co-sponsored by Poetry magazine as well as the Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College and the Student Affairs Offices at Columbia College. Because the Printers’ Ball has its roots in the literary world, we asked all participating artists to give us work that incorporates text in some way.
“COPY JAM!” will be an interactive print event. During the party, fifty works by fifty artists will be displayed in a grid on the wall. Upon arrival, each guest will be handed a complimentary ticket that can be exchanged for one black & white photocopy of any work the guest chooses. There will be no sales; one ticket equals one copy. Copies will be made LIVE in the gallery for one night only from 6-9PM!
All are welcome, and we hope to see you there.
