The Franklin presents Satellites, a one-night event co-curated by Steven L. Bridges and Third Object, to take place on May 23, 2015, from 6 – 10pm. The event celebrates two recent exhibitions in Chicago dealing with the cultural import of the cosmos: Cosmosis, at the Hyde Park Art Center, and Were the Eye Not Sunlike, at Fernwey Gallery and on ACRE TV. Further extending the reach of these two distinct yet interrelated exhibitions, a program of performances by artists such as Sarah and Joseph Belknap, Dana Carter, Rachel Foster, Nicholas Sagan and Erin Washington will take place throughout the evening, as well as an ACRE TV watching party featuring work by Blair Bogin, Ben Russell, Fern Silva, Robert Todd, Penelope Umbrico, and Eileen Rae Walsh, among others.
