Julie Potratz: ROCK SHOW opens 8/26

Cabin is pleased to announce the exhibition, ROCK SHOW, featuring new video and photographic work by Chicago artist Julie Potratz. 

ROCK SHOW displays documents of Julie Potratz’s practice of embodied performance. The work investigates a cerebral and visceral effort through the most basic means. Slapstick funny with weighty overtones, Potratz takes to struggles head-first. 

Please join us for a reception with the artist on August 26 from 4-7pm.

Julie Potratz is a Chicago based artist whose practice is primarily focused upon
performance, but also includes photography, video, sculpture, and installation. Her
whimsical, introspective work addresses the complexities of human finitude, mortality,
social isolation, and the confusing nature of navigating one’s own psyche. Recent
exhibitions include Deitch Projects, New York, NY, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art,
Omaha NE, The Paragraph Gallery, Kansas City, MO and the Looking Glass Theatre,
Chicago, IL. She received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2008, and will
receive her MFA from the University of Illinois Chicago in 2014.

Cabin is a home gallery located in Chicago, IL. Cabin provides artists with a dedicated gallery in an alternative space context for experimental and occasional exhibitions.
