Conceptual artist has show at Indi Go

CHAMPAIGN — The exhibition "Unrequited," featuring work by Quinn Koeneman, a conceptual artist and sophomore at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, will open Friday evening at the Indi Go Artist Co-op, 9 E. University Ave., C.

Koeneman works largely in sculpture and drawing, and sometimes interacts with his works. He uses proxemics and social dynamics to explore concepts of relationships, intimacy and other social bonds.

Working with materials such as pillows, wallpaper, Polaroids, and bed sheets, Koeneman creates a level of interaction with the viewer, often incorporating their relationship to the art into the work itself.

The opening reception will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, and the exhibition will be open for viewing from 7 to 9 p.m. through Aug. 13.
