Join us on Thursday, April 5th at 7:00PM at a private Oak Street residence for spectacular skyline views, sparkling conversation and an inventive, multi-course dinner with pairings.
Our guest of honor is JC Gabel, publisher and editor-in-chief of The Chicagoan, a new and ambitious magazine. Founder of the cult-favorite publication Stop Smiling, Gabel possesses a game-changing vision for the city's literary scene. I'm excited for a night of discussion about living, creating and eating in Chicago.
One of TimeOut's "Chefs to Watch," Chef Abraham Conlon and his X-Marx team have crafted a multi-course tasting menu inspired by some of the articles in the premiere edition of The Chicagoan, such as Kari Lydersen's "How to Reinvent a Soup Kitchen," Edward "Rocky" Kolb's "Atomic Post Cards" and Josh Schollmeyer's oral history of Siskel and Ebert, "Enemies, A Love Story."
Besides dinner, drinks and conversation, each Salon participant will take home a copy of The Chicagoan as well as three back issues of Stop Smiling. The launch issue of this bi-annual $20 magazine is nearly sold out; The Salon Series may very well be the last place to get one.
The Salon Series is proud to support JC Gabel and The Chicagoan: 10% of ticket sales will be donated to Gabel's non-profit, The Chicagoan Media.
See you there,
Host, The Salon Series
The Salon Series is an exhibition project that emphasizes participation between guests and artists to explore meaning, context and craft of new work. Shows are hosted in a social setting in Chicago.
The Salon Series continues a creative legacy of exchanging ideas while providing artists with a venue to share and converse about their work.
