Guest Reviewer: Paul Hopkin
As part of our mission to unite our community of artists with art professionals throughout Chicago, we offer portfolio reviews throughout the year. Each artist that signs up for a portfolio review will receive a 30-minute, private review with a curator, educator, gallery director, or arts administrator.
This is a unique opportunity for artists to receive feedback on a current body of work or upcoming project, as well as suggestions on how to prepare for other professional opportunities. Participating artists should bring a portfolio of current work to share with the guest reviewer.
Paul Hopkin Bio:
Paul Hopkin was raised by devout Mormons in the Nevada desert. He was expected to become a scientist. He earned a BFA in ceramics from BYU and an MFA from SAIC. He has a quiet but active studio practice that focuses on material connections to narrative structures. He has a tendency to include food and alcoholic beverages as both subject matter and production material. Paul established slow in 2009, a storefront gallery that has established itself in Chicago’s vibrant scene of artist run spaces. He has curated over 50 shows and worked with couple hundred artists. He has curated shows in other venues as well including the largest ever group show in Clutch, a 5” white cube inside Meg Duguid’s purse, Heaven Gallery, Dock 6, and Columbia College’s A &D Gallery.
Space is limited to six artists. Advanced registration is required. The non-refundable registration fee can be paid online. The registration deadline is Monday, June 10, 2019 . Registrants are encouraged to arrive 10-15 minutes early to their scheduled appointment.
