The fifth and most conceptually broad iteration of the project, Ten x Ten 2017: Dual Practices brought together 10 notable Chicago artists who have robust practices in both visual art and music. By considering questions about boundaries and location, Ten x Ten 2017 investigated Chicago neighborhood identities, urban change, and comfort in space and place. Five artist pairs collaborated over several months to each create a two-part work that includes a song or audio piece and an 18″ x 18″ screen print.
Ten x Ten 2017: Dual Practices collection features sonic works by each artist pairing as well as a fold out booklet with their coinciding prints and artistic statements.
Featured artists pairs are:
Melina Ausikaitis / Abrosia Bartošekulva
Mark Booth / Diedre Huckabay
Cathy Hsiao / Damon Locks
Lou Mallozzi / Joseph Clayton Mills
Allen Moore / Sadie Woods
Junli Song is an artist and storyteller with a rather unusual background, having previously studied economics and international development at the University of Chicago and then the University of Oxford, respectively. However, her love of art and books soon led her back to the creative path, and she completed the MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art in 2018.
During the course of her master’s programme, Junli was introduced to printmaking and she soon developed an obsession with screen print, colour palettes, patterns, and beautiful paper. Following her completion of the MA, Junli continued to pursue her love of screen printing through a fellowship at Spudnik Press, a printmaking collective in her hometown of Chicago. She is currently exploring storytelling in many guises, including traditional illustration, alternative book forms, and fine art prints.

Colleen graduated from Massachusetts College of Art & Design with a BFA in illustration. When she’s not drawing or making a mess, she likes to bake pastries or find people that know what they’re doing in the kitchen (specifically with regard to baking pastries; she likes pastries; she really likes pastries).
