September 19 to October 11, 2014

Third Friday Reception: Friday, September 19 from 7 to 10 pm

After a successful exhibition at Gallery 13 in Minneapolis, MN, GOMEZ/GONZALEZ comes to 33 Contemporary Gallery in Chicago starting the weekend of ExpoChicago and running as part of Chicago Artists Month. The exhibition highlights a six month collaboration between Chicago based artists Sergio Gomez and Mario Gonzalez Jr. Both artists painted simultaneously a 72" x 168" painting using their individual styles. The result was an elaborate mixture of Gomez' abstract figuration interlaced with Gonzalez' stylized letter forms and symbols titled "Gomez/Gonzalez." The expressive qualities and systematic application of forms combined with the energy of spontaneous painting performance make this 4-panel work a center piece for the exhibition. Three additional 48" x 50" collaborations pieces are part of the exhibition as well as individual works from each artist.

Gallery Director Sergio Gomez co-curates the National Museum of Mexican Art's special exhibit at EXPO Chicago

The National Museum of Mexican Art, the most prominent Latino arts organization in the country, will present "Border Crossings: Mexico/USA" at EXPO CHICAGO 2014. Organized by Director of the National Museum of Mexican Art Carlos Tortolero and Mexico-based independent curator Margaret Failoni, the special exhibition brings together a group of young emerging artists from both sides of the border comparing the dichotomy between these two worlds as seen from each side. The selected artists interrogate how, if at all, the national roots of the artists influences the art. Curated by Failoni, selecting artists from Mexico, and Sergio Gomez, selecting artists from Chicago, "Border Crossings" will include work by Alfonso Piloto Nieves, Elsa Muñoz, Salvador Jimenez Flores, Ruben Aguirre, Luis Sahagun, Victoria Martinez, Daniela Edburg, Alejandra Mendoza, Francisco (Paco) Esnayra, Leonardo Diaz, Jayden Romay and Daniela Libertad.
