Clutch Gallery

Clutch Gallery Clutch Gallery is a 25-square-inch space located in the heart of Meg Duguid's purse.

Clutch Gallery is a 25-square-inch space in the heart of Meg Duguid's purse. It is on loan to Tanner Woodford of the Chicago Design Museum. The gallery is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art of all media. Clutch opened in 2009. Initially intended to maintain regular programming for one year, Duguid then decided to lend her favorite accessory to other curators. This project will continue until the gallery wears out from daily use. To view its current exhibition, and find out where Clutch is going next, follow it on Facebook, or make an appointment for a personal viewing time.

We need to expand our city's artist-run footprint on wikipedia.

Hello Chicago,
It has come to our attention that our city is not listed in this article about artist run spaces. We are urging you to help rectify this. Add what you know and pass it on.

Clutch Gallery is pleased to present "Canyon Flow" by Studio Gang Architects, in collaboration with Chicago Design Museum. Members of Soho House Chicago may borrow the 25-square-inch Clutch Gallery overnight. It can be booked through the house's reception desk.

The dynamic qualities of nature, and the striking forms shaped by natural processes, are an endless source of inspiration for our architecture. From the "vertical topography" of our Aqua Tower in Chicago, with its undulated balconies, to the dramatic, canyon-like spaces of our Gilder Center at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, we are interested in how design can learn from nature to bring people together for meaningful shared experience. The liquid material of concrete often provides the perfect medium for this kind of architectural innovation. Canyon Flow embraces both the physical power of nature's forces and the wonder they inspire, as well as embodying the immersive currents of the creative flow we seek. —Jeanne Gang, Studio Gang
