Alexander Valentine

01.29.12 – 03.03.12

devening projects + editions presents Blonder Tongue Audio Baton, a collection of editioned portfolios, publications, prints, posters and packages by Chicago artist Alex Valentine. The title of the exhibition borrows from the name of a 1950’s analog graphic equalizer as well as the title of an album by the Swirlies, a Boston shoegaze band from the 1990s.

Alex Valentine received his MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011. He is an instructor in the Print Media Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is a founding member of No Coast, formerly a retail, exhibition and studio space dedicated to producing, displaying, and distributing artist projects. His recent projects include the Tokyo Art Book Fair and What It Is Gallery in Oak Park, IL.
