New Exhibition in Springfield, Illinois at Demo Project - October 2014

Added on by Victoria Calabro.

More info to come!

DEMO Project is an artist-run contemporary and alternative project gallery in Springfield, IL. The gallery demonstrates trends in contemporary art from emerging and mid-career artists and curators, and is slated for demolition in three years.

DEMO Project is an artist-run contemporary and alternative project gallery in Springfield, IL. The gallery demonstrates experimental trends in contemporary art from emerging and mid-career artists and curators. The gallery provides a pathway for experimental forms of art to exist in Central Illinois and does not pursue commercial interests. Artists use the space as they self-direct, to experiment and present without risk, while offering the community a venue to see and consider contemporary art practices. DEMO Project, a space donated for use by the Springfield Art Association and directed by artists affiliated with the University of Illinois Springfield, is slated for demolition in three years. 

The space was founded by and is under the direction of:

Brad Balster 
Shane Harris 
Judah Johnson 
Allison Lacher
Jeff Robinson 

History: 

DEMO Project, a small white house on the Springfield Art Association (SAA) campus in Springfield, IL, was built in the early twentieth century (pre-1920) as a dwelling for the servants of Alice Edwards Ferguson, who lived in the Ferguson Mansion on North Fifth Street where a community garden is now located. After the first occupants moved away, the house was occupied by caretakers of historic Edwards Place, the oldest home in Springfield which sits adjacent to DEMO Project. Under the ownership of the SAA, the DEMO Project house was used as a classroom and summer art camp space for many years. Over the past decade, however, it has been relegated to storage space. The SAA, currently with a capital campaign underway, intends to demolish the house in three years to accommodate a new ceramics and glassblowing facility. Until the time of its DEMOlition, the SAA has offered this vacant space to locally-based contemporary artists to direct as an outlet for experimental, contemporary art in the community of Springfield. The central living space of the house has been modified into a non-traditional gallery space to fulfill the mission of DEMO Project, which was launched in September 2013.

Coldworking techniques will be introduced to refine and finish individual castings. Experiment and have fun.
