Sometimes the mere sight of a contemporary art gallery evokes suspension of time and space with its quiet minimalism. That's what it's like to stumble upon Gallery 2, or G2. So discreet and unexpected that you would miss it if you didn't know it was there, it's a welcoming excuse for an art fix.
Housed in The School of the Art Institute of Chicago's White Tower building, G2 is one of two public exhibition facilities of The School, showcasing innovative and experimental work by students, faculty, staff and alumni. G2's extensive programming includes exhibitions, performances, film and video screenings and site-specific installations. Check out its Web site for the latest schedule and crash the glitzy opening receptions, where you can schmooze with the next Damien Hirst or Matthew Barney.
