For their first exhibition in Chicago, Bay Area artists Greg Ito and Jonah Susskind present Something Other Than. This exhibition is a synthesis of collaborative as well as individual works that coalesce through a shared approach to material and process. Beginning with the notion of an imaginary potential event, this exhibition has grown into something other than.
