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.

In Chicago, Isé has written extensively on contemporary art and culture for publications such as artforum.com, Chicago magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Bad at Sports, and New City. She was also the Editor of the Art21 Blog.
