Galina

Galina Shevchenko is a Moscow born, Chicago based multimedia artist, she joined CAD in May of 2012 to have a new platform for exhibiting and curatorial explorations.

Galina’ s work has been shown at numerous venues nationally and internationally, including international Art Fairs in Miami and Chicago, Berlin’s Director’s Lounge Video Festival, New York’s Red Shift Film Festival, Chicago’s Motion Graphics Festival, Media ART LAB segment of Moscow International Film Festival, where her work took a second Prize in 2007; Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Art Institute of Chicago and numerous Chicago Art galleries.

Galina’s  visual language coexists across her live video performance, animation, video installation and immersive video environments that she creates for art galleries , theatrical happenings and multimedia festivals. She loves to combine vernacular visual elements with archetypical and cultural icons creating exquisite combinations of high and pop, classical and postmodern.  Whether it is a video, a painting, an animation or a design object, Galina’s work is baroque and provocative, it teases &questions, seduces & demands… ultimately it is a delicious visual treat. More of Galina’s work could be viewed on her website www.gsterritory.com
