“Home Economics” is an investigation of Chicago’s apartment gallery culture and lifestyle. The collaborate, AndrewandAndrea, highlight the importance of apartment galleries as sites of building and sustaining networks and contestation — the broad economic consequences that operate within these social spaces.
The duo have been actively participating and documenting the numerous apartment galleries all over Chicago. Photographs taken at such venues reflect the scene at mini dutch’s opening.
Their works deal with the visual culture of late capitalism in its often most banal or discreet forms. Through their multidisciplinary practice, they expose both the ideological and social constructs inherent within these systems of representation.
AndrewandAndrea is a collaboration between Andrew Lochead and Andrea Slavik. They are currently MA candidates in the Department of Visual Critical Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Both have attended the University of Windsor — Slavik her BFA in Integrated Media in 2005 and Lochhead receiving his BA in Art History in 2006. They also like cats and karaoke in no particular order.
