THE MISSION presents: THE SUB-MISSION, an alternative installation project space created to encourage and promote artists living and working in Chicago.

Now in its second year, THE SUB-MISSION is located below the main gallery. The space is a natural progression toward fulfilling their mission statement. Specifically, THE SUB-MISSION was created to showcase local artists and provide an opportunity to create a dialogue between themselves and the surrounding community.

This to be a unique project– a raw space available for artists to transform, bounded only by their own vision.

– Current CV
– Brief artist statement
– Detailed summary of installation project; including materials, installation timeline, and layout.
