Art Collectives are as old as prehistoric cave paintings. When artists first started working in teams no one knows exactly, but what we do know today is, they are a force to be reckoned with. From popular Feminist Art Collectives such as "Pussy Riot", to the "Industry of the Ordinary", a Chicago based collective that works in a variety of mediums, these power teams are shaken things up in the art world.
In fact these collectives inspire other artists that don't work well with others to go beyond the normal output expected of an artist. Together these collectives can gain more ground and explore ideas that a single artist mind sometimes cannot fathom. "Industry of the Ordinary" gave me a studio tour inside their "Chicago Mana Contemporary" gallery.
It was a feast for sore eyes as I got a taste of a nude couple wearing masks, pop-art galore and other interesting art pieces that command a fine art professionalism. Both Adam Brooks and Mathew Wilson are artists and educators, while Adam focuses his talents in the curatorial realm. Together these two demi-gods are taking over Chicago with their explicit thinking and aesthetic mastery. In fact most of the Chicago Mana Contemporary Artists are some of the best artists in Chicago and the "Industry of the Ordinary" is at the top of the food chain.
Just like when Basquiat and Warhol teamed up in the 80's, all eyes were on this power duo. Warhol with his clean aesthetic and Basquiat with his street and neo-primitive style created some of the best work of that decade. Pussy Riot is a musical sensation that battles whole governments and does not back down. Industry of the Ordinary is creating some of the best work of this decade and it is all happening in Chicago's burgeoning art scene. Do not miss this power collective.
