Exhibition: Past Bless This MessJan 18–Mar 12, 2011


Mixing dreams, facts, and emotions in works in drawing, embroidery, installation, and performance, four artists examine queer bodies in and outside of messy systems. Shuttling across inside and outside, they become beautifully entangled in the queer chaos of it all.

Bless This Mess is presented concurrently with Ambiguity Is My Weapon.

Artists’ Websites:


Edie Fake, Forced into Femininity, Robin Hustle, and Lee Relvas.


Bless This Mess is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the College of Architecture and the Arts, University of Illinois at Chicago; and a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
