Lindsay Hutchens

Lindsay Hutchens (American, b. 1983) makes art (lately, photographs of her mom, dad, and ex-boyfriends), writes about vernacular family photographs, sometimes gets to do research and write wall labels at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and curates exhibitions in her apartment gallery, Gallery Kin, and as a curatorial fellow at ACRE Projects. A Chicago, Illinois, transplant from Texas, Lindsay holds a Master of Arts degree as a Dean’s Scholar in Visual Critical Studies from School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), having also earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Photography from SAIC. She holds a Bachelor of Arts with honors in Visual Journalism from Brooks Institute of Photography (Ventura, CA), and has tattoos on her body to represent each of these disparate homes.

Lindsay’s work has been previously exhibited in a library hallway at SAIC, a front lawn on the east side of Austin, at a music venue in LA, at the entrance to a theater in NY, on a wooden light pole on Western Ave. in Chicago, on 3-4 album covers, and at the American Studies Association annual meeting in the peer reviewed session Alternative Views: Photography, Self-Representation and Fact in Contemporary American Art and Culture. Her work has been described as both “a lasting impression of bittersweet recollection and hesitant hope for the future,” and also “kind of funny.”

About #bitres:
As a means of expanding Co-Lab Project's programming into the digital realm, artist/curator Vladimir Mejia selects artists to participate in an Instagram hosted month-long residency. Artists are given full control of the @colabprojectsbitres Instagram account, and all images posted by the artist are categorized by hashtags representing the artist name in residency.

Partial Shade and Co-Lab Projects Presents: A Pit Fire
November 16th, 17th, 23rd, and 24th, 2019

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 23rd, 5-8pm 

11.16  Loading and lighting the pits; 12-6pm
11.17  Excavating the objects; 12-6pm
11.23 + 24  Exhibition featuring ceramic objects fired the previous weekend; 12-6pm
Each portion of this process is open to the public

Partial Shade and Co-Lab Projects present an exhibition in two parts in conjunction with The East Austin Studio Tour. The first weekend will consist of a pit fire, followed by an exhibition of the resulting ceramic objects the second weekend. Creating a parallel to Partial Shade’s larger curatorial practice, the objects on view will embody the unpredictability and chance inherent to working in an outdoor space. The contents of the fire dictate the surface color and texture of the objects. The methods for creating different surfaces reframe domestic materiality as a series of chemical actions/reactions, compounds, and sensitivities. Vapors from burning sawdust, manure, copper, newsprint, compost etc enter the open pores of the objects, resulting in a pattern shaped by context and environment— residual evidence of contact.  

Sterling Allen, Jesse Cline, Ryan Crowley, Alex Diamond, Connor Frew, Ron Geibel, Ryan Hawk, Merideth Hillbrand, Annie May Johnson, Zoe Koke, Ling-Lin Ku, Emily Lee, Gabo Martini, Bucky Miller, Rebecca Milton, Virginia Lee Montgomery, Michael Muelhaupt, Landon O’Brian, Scott Proctor, Tammie Rubin, Henry Smith, Rachael Starbuck, Shanie Tomassini, Ariel Wood

A Platform is a series of events and art installations organized by Partial Shade and Co-Lab Projects, centered around a physical platform built on an empty lot in East Austin. A Platform will provide a literal and conceptual space for emerging artists to share work and experiences and will provide artists and visitors an opportunity to experiment with new modes of relating to each other and their surroundings. 

The structure for A Platform takes the form of a ramp gradually rising to a flat platform 2ft off the ground; this incline makes the platform more accessible to viewers and acts to undermine the established hierarchical relationship between performer and audience. This blurring of boundaries by an unusual, structural site from which to make and view art will encourage all involved to renegotiate their relationship with the physical and social space they are navigating.

PARTIAL SHADE is a nomadic curatorial project focused on organizing visual art exhibitions in non-traditional spaces, with work that is responsive to, considerate of, and affected by its environment. Untethered to one specific piece of real estate, Partial Shade operates as a model for a sustainable, alternative exhibition platform, and offers artists the opportunity to experiment with work that wouldn’t otherwise fit comfortably in a conventional gallery space.

Partial Shade is organized by Rachael Starbuck, Michael Muelhaupt, and Jesse Cline.

This project is sponsored in part by the Texas Commission on the Arts.
