It’s with a heavy heart that we call a close on the busy Spring 2015 season of CATE. We have welcomed artists from far and wide to present a diverse and eclectic spectrum of work here in Chicago this spring. From Soon-Mi Yoo’s beautiful and complex Songs from the North, a film that weaves biography, archival material, and first-person footage together to create a nuanced look at life in North Korea, to John Gerrard’s hyper-realistic digital works that question the power structures and energy networks that facilitate our everyday existence. I’d like to thank all our visiting artists for sharing their work with us, as well as our presenting partners the Gene Siskel Film Center and Video Data Bank. I would also like to thank our numerous SAIC student writers, who each week  have sat down to write thoughtful and sensitive editorials for our blog. Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming special content on our blog and the release of our Fall 2015 season line-up!
