Gathered in the Stretching Now


On View: March 15 – April 21, 2024
Opening Reception: Friday, March 15 (7-11 pm)
Heaven Gallery
1550 N Milwaukee Ave #2, Chicago, IL 60622
Open Friday & Saturday 1-6 pm, Sunday 1-5 pm, or by appointment

Gathered in the Stretching Now prompts an elongated sense of our present “now”, featuring work by Jenn Cacciola, Jennifer Tazewell Mawby, Taya Naumovich, Dana O’Malley, and SK Reed. Here, time becomes a malleable, textured, striated, and translucent material, used to encourage a reorientation of our personal senses of history, future, and the space between. Methods developed by The Long Now Foundation serve as a unifying framework among the artists. The Long Now is “the recognition that the precise moment you’re in grows out of the past and is a seed for the future. The longer your sense of Now, the more past and future it includes…” and as an effect, the foundation hopes to “foster responsibility in the framework of the next 10,000 years” (Brian Eno). Gathered in the Stretching Now includes large-scale installation, drawing, assemblage, painting, and mixed-media sculpture.
