Assistant Professor of Painting Jason Lahr will have 4 recent paintings in the Aron Packer Projects group show Resurrection opening in Chicago at Co Prosperity Sphere on Friday, May 20.

Resurrection is Aron Packer Projects’ first pop-up show in Chicago since Packer closed his Lake Street space last year. (Btw, Packer paved the way for pop-ups—in the late 80’s and early 90’s he featured his first gallery shows in his Rogers Park 3rd floor apartment.) Coming full circle with a roving format, Packer infamously puts together a large-scale group show featuring many artists that he’s long-shown, as well as several talents new to the fold. Think Summer blockbuster sequels to Armageddon and AlienResurrection is a MUST SEE. Gotta be fresh! And it is.

The Co-Prosperity Sphere (C-PS) is an experimental cultural center located in the neighborhood of Bridgeport. The space is used to showcase work by artists, performers and cultural workers of all stripes. The C-PS hosts exhibitions, screenings, presentations, installations, festivals, meetings, and performance programs in its 5,000+ square foot gallery. The space hosts between 35-60 events and exhibitions a year serving over 10,000 individuals a year.
