Collection: RIVER NORTH DESIGN DISTRICT WALK 2021: Toto Showroom Collection

Featured Artists: 

Sara SalassSara Salass is Chicago and DC-based Iranian-American artist. She graduated with Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Fine Arts, and Art History from The George Washington University (2016) and has recently graduated with Masters of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2019)."My artworks explore the psychological and emotional contours of hookup culturesocial media, and the objectification of women. am very interested in the ways that sexual politics have changed in the last 10 or so years. In particular, my personal experience and research has drawn my attention to the ways in which social media profoundly impacts womeninteractions with their own bodies. My work is highly discursive, as it draws on the textual and linguistic patterns that occur on social media. The language use in my work is directly taken from the source. At the same time, try to intensify and distort these patterns in order to call attention to the darker undercurrents of online sex cultureSo overall, try to exploit tensions in order to create dialectical interplay between sex-positive thinking and the more tumultuous experience of self-criticism and self-doubt around oneown bodyI  feel that these polar opposites are both equally strong forces in online hookup culture. donaim tor esolve the tension between these competing forces. Instead, want to encourage viewers to occupy space of discomfort as they explore how these forces run up against one another in physically charged way."

Savannah Jubic: Savannah Jubic is Chicago-based fiber and installation artist whose work explores themes of anxiety and desperation through labor-intensive gestureMateriality is of the utmost importance as the artist  processes intangible concepts, ultimately realized in haptic forms. Processes such as handweavingdestruction of woven cloth, and repetitive mending lend direct physical engagement, their physicality embedding emotion in object, performanceand installation. Jubicwork has been exhibited both in the United States and internationallyShe has been the recipient of Distinguished Scholar Scholarship from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, John Kurtich Travel Scholarship, and Mary Hambidge Weaving Fellowship.
