The Peninsula Chicago, in partnership with Kasmin, is pleased to present REVERB, an exhibition of contemporary art showcasing works by Naama Tsabar, James Nares and Ivan Navarro. The three artists practices explore movement, sound, and electricity, engaging with the rhythm and structure of the urban environment. This is the fifth consecutive year that The Peninsula Chicago has hosted a contemporary art exhibit at the hotel, in conjunction with EXPO CHICAGO, the International Exposition of Contemporary and Modern Art, the eighth edition of which will take place at Navy Pier, September 20 to 22, 2019. On view and open to the public throughout the hotel’s public space from September 20 through October 22, 2019. Naama Tsabar’s Transition canvases repurpose the internal and external components of the amplifier—wires, speaker, circuit board—to create a new formal visual experience whilst retaining the object’s ability to broadcast sound. Tsabar’s sculptural works and sonic installations weave together iconic actions and objects from rock music (the guitar, the amplifier, the microphone). The motifs of femininity, gender, disruption, destruction, and reconstruction recur throughout her work and performances.
