Spudnik Press Cooperative, together with Fulton Street Collective, are pleased to present An Evening with Richard Hull, Featuring Tim Daisy and Katinka Kleijn. This special concert and print release event are organized on the occasion of a newly published limited edition of prints by esteemed artist Richard Hull, produced by Spudnik Press Cooperative.
As part of the invitational Fine Art Editions Program at Spudnik Press, Hull created a sugar-lift aquatint intaglio print. The work is comprised of concentric circles and loops, carefully arranged on top of one another and accentuated by repetitive forms to give rise to a harmonious potrait-like structure, titled “Spud”.
A longtime fan of jazz improvisation, Hull’s lyrical artwork, including selections from his recent exhibition at Western Exhibitions, will be featured alongside a rare musical performance by Chicago-based percussionist and composer Tim Daisy and reknown Dutch cellist Katinka Kleijn. Distinguished for their contributions to the field of improvised music, Daisy and Kleijn will delight our audience with a spontaneous composition in response to Hull’s work, as well as share a few personal anecdotes about their cross-disciplinary collaboration —all in the intimate environment of Fulton Street Collective’s space.

Katinka Kleijn defies today’s traditional definition of a cellist, transitioning comfortably through the styles of classical, experimental, contemporary, improvisatory, folk and progressive rock, as well as across the traditional fields of solo, chamber and orchestral performance. Kleijn is a member of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and is in frequent demand as soloist.
