The H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art will host the exhibition “Privates” through Saturday, Nov. 4.

“Privates” is a multifaceted initiative designed to address overlapping behaviors inherent in the contemporary art community. Chicago artists Nicole Mauser and Tobey Albright have prepared exhibits from their private art collections.

The gallery functions as a book-like stage, making public an aspect of the artist that is typically unknown. In the tradition of a museum rotating its collection, the installation manifests in multiple iterations to provide insight into artists through the things they view and possess.

These collections comprise hand-crafted originals, secondhand store scores, internet marketplace finds, and bootleg fabrications. This effort addresses collecting as a holistic embodiment of art fanaticism and the mutual curiosities that compose the foundation of Mauser and Albright’s friendship.

The gallery is open from noon to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday (with additional Thursday evening hours from 6 to 8 p.m.) and from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday.
