At the Fashion Outlets of Chicago
Collaborating with Fashion Outlets of Chicago’s (FOC) arts initiative program—THE COLLECTION—Johalla Projects unveiled the first iteration of their endeavor to showcase artists through a series rotating mobile exhibitions. Curated by Director Anna Cerniglia, the exhibition features the work of Aimée Beaubien, Kate McQuillen and Jeroen Nelemans, and sits amongst an impressive exhibition of internationally recognized artists peppered throughout the luxury retail setting. Additionally, Johalla Projects assisted in producing the opening reception that celebrated the announcement of FOC’s parent company Macerich’s $1 million dollar investment in THE COLLECTION. The private event included a pop-up installation lounge by artist James Jankowiak, a meet and greets with the artists, live DJ sets, and some of Chicago’s most talented fashion nail designers and spray paint artists on site providing live demonstrations to nearly 200 guests.
