WHAT: Sonnenzimmer’s Shape Song is the collective work of artists Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. Their collaboration began in 2006 in Chicago, Illinois. Initially recognized for their idiosyncratic commissioned screen-printed posters, their practice has since morphed into an interdisciplinary toolshed spanning multiple platforms, including exhibitions, publishing, performance, graphic design and exhibition design.

Butcher and Nakanishi’s work has been exhibited in the United States, China and Europe, with recent exhibitions at the Arts Club of Chicago, Vebikus Kunsthalle Schaffhausen in Switzerland and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The artists give lectures and lead workshops in academic and commercial settings, including visits to California Institute for the Arts, The Art Institute of Chicago, Pratt Institute, Minneapolis College of Art and Design and Aalto University in Helsinki.

Light refreshments will be served at the exhibit’s opening reception.
