Where Cleveland Institute of Art
This summer, the Cleveland Institute of Art has partnered with FRONT International to host an exhibition in Reinberger Gallery, which opens July 14and runs through October 7, 2018. This exhibition, curated by Michelle Grabner, is titled Great Lakes Research and hosts a variety of artists from cities within the Great Lakes region, including Toronto, Detroit, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Cleveland. One of the goals of Grabner’s project is to draw attention to artists who maintain their practices outside of the coastal cultural hubs of New York and Los Angeles.
The Cleveland Institute of Art has a longstanding reputation as a foremost school of art and design within the Midwest. CIA serves as a creative incubator for artists just starting their careers. This would not be possible without the dedication and support of a robust faculty of artists who are committed to their students and the ever-evolving discourse surrounding the contemporary art milieu.
As such, Critical Feedback is a reimagining of CIA's decades-long tradition of exhibiting the work of current ranked and full-time faculty. Artworks are installed throughout the first and second floors of the George Gund building, including the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Atrium, the Jack and Maryann Katzenmeyer Student Lounge, John and Sally Schulze North Lobby, the Ann and Norman Student + Alumni Gallery—and outside, on the Toby D. Lewis Media Mesh. Site plays an important role here, as some artists produced work that responds directly to the conditions of these spaces.
Most importantly, Critical Feedback aims to embrace the role of artists who are educators and celebrate the spirit of what they do, which is activate and encourage the exchange of ideas through constructive criticism.
