Adam Ekberg (2009)


Adam Ekberg

The Chiguide Weekly by Ginny Berg

When you see Chicago Photographer Adam Ekberg’s work, you’ll understand why he’s gotten a lot of attention recently. His use of ‘lens-based phenomena’ suits his deceptively ordinary and still settings, lending them a certain magic and deliberation. Ekberg’s work was recently included in the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Elements of Photography, and now his newest works, including photographs and video, are part of a solo exhibition at Thomas Robertello Gallery in the West Loop. Don’t miss the chance to admire these beautiful new works by a Chicago artist.

Insider Info: This show is Ekberg’s second solo exhibition at Thomas Robertello. The gallery is a small cozy spot on the main restaurant drag on Randolph, and because of the size and intimacy of the space, viewing Ekberg’s works in person is a Chicago opportunity you shouldn’t miss. Try to make it to the December 11, Friday night opening (5-8pm) to meet both Robertello the dealer, as well as the artist himself. Ekberg resides in Chicago and graduated from the School of the Art Institute’s MFA Photography program in 2006.
