Chicago-based Sonnenzimmer (Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi) and Montréal-based Seripop (Yannick Desranleau and Chloe Lum) have independently, but in a rich dialogue, developed bodies of screen-printed work that investigate the relationship between the materials of fabric and paper. Sonnenzimmer’s sculptural work investigates fabric as if it were a kind of paper (shaping, painting, and printing on it as a wall-hanging or floor piece). Seripop creates large-scale installations that utilize paper as if it were fabric (draping and folding massive sheets with a casualness that belies the fragility of the medium).

Simultaneous will consist of dual large-scale installations which will include a range of printed paper and fabric works, including textiles, wall-hangings, folded paper sculptures, posters, and audio elements.

Simultaneous is curated by Julia V. Hendrickson, an independent curator, editor, and writer who lives in Austin, Texas.
